Sparta & Spartan Soldiers Reading
This is a fantastic primary source account of how children in the Greek city-state of Sparta were raised to become the fierce warriors they are famous for being.
The 1-page excerpt from The Lives of Plutarch has been edited so that it is easy for students to understand and relate to. It tells of the many incredibly difficult things children in Sparta went through to become soldiers and how harshly they were treated.
After reading the excerpt, students complete the short reading comprehension and opinion questions at the end. An answer key for these is included for your convenience.
