 Ancient Greece Simulation

Introduction: Ancient Greece has left many powerful legacies on the modern world in terms of government strucutre, arts, culture, sports and military tactics. Under what circumstances did these legacies emerge during Ancient Greece during the Classical Age?

Groups: The class will be broken into five powerful city states for this simulation: Athens, Sparta, Corinth, Thebes and Argos. The city states will compete against each other in various areas and tasks to gain a greater sense of what life was like in Ancient Greece. We will finish our sim with the "Golden Greeks" in which awards will be given based on performances throughout the simulation.
