Hi ! I am Zeus the King of
Gods. If someone upsets
  me, I hit them with a
        lightning bolt!

  I am also the Weather God. I like
 to change girlfriends even though
  I have a wife.(That means I have
          a lot of children)
            Don’t tell her!
What should I tell you about

             City States: Athens
                and Sparta!
Athens was the ‘center of
education’ in Greece. All boys
went to school and learnt
reading and writing instead of
war education.
   Girls learned at home and learned how to run
    a home and how to be good wives and
   On the other hand, boys that were 7-14,
    attended a day school outside the home.
    There, they memorized Homeric poetry and
    learned to play the lyre. They learned drama,   B
    public speaking, reading, writing, math, and    o
    perhaps even how to play the flute. After       y
    middle school, they went to a four year high    s
    school and learned more about math,
    science, and government. At 18, they
    attended two years of military school.

                         main Greek
Sparta was the ‘world
of war’ in ancient
Greece. Boys AND girls
trained to be solders.

   Spartans believed in a life of discipline, self-
    denial, and simplicity. They were very loyal to
    the state of Sparta.
   Every Spartan, male or female, was required to
    have a perfect body.
   When babies were born in ancient Sparta,
    Spartan soldiers would come by the house and
    check the baby. If the baby did not appear
    healthy and strong, the baby was taken away,
    and left to die on a hillside, or taken away to
    be trained as a slave.

  interesting, yes? Let me
   introduce some of my
  ‘friends’ before I leave!

     Zeus                Demeter


    Snapshot from Zeus’s Family Tree
 Hera was the sister and wife of Zeus. This
  was not a normal arrangement for the
  Greeks but it was OK for gods.
 She was also a child of Rhea and
  Chronos. She’s the marriage goddess.
 Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love,
  beauty, and sexuality.
 There are two stories of her birth: one
  was that she was born when Cronus cut
  off Uranus' organs and threw them into
  the sea, and she popped up through the
  sea foam.
   As the goddess of the harvest, Demeter
    had many jobs including changing the
    seasons, fertilising the soil and preparing
    the best grains for the good farmers.
 After she arrived with Hades at the
  Underworld, her name was not Kore
 She is the Queen of the Underworld and
  Queen of the Night.
           I am a child of Zeus and
         Demeter. I ate 4 seeds that
          forced me to go back to
              the Underworld for 4
         months. I didn’t know they
                had this power!
If a 5 year old heard of Zeus,
they would be very scared.

  He’s GONE!
