Greek Cultural Contributions
city-state had a temple that was dedicated to a specific god. They went there to worship and make sacrifices. Some leaders like Pericles and Alexander the Great spread the Greek Architecture throughout Europe.
We see Greek influence in architecture today in important buildings. The White House, Capitol Building, Supreme Court, and the Lincoln Memorial all have columns that show Greek influences.
We have a democracy like the Greeks did. Where people can vote but you have to be 18 or older to participate. We have term limits today like the President changes every four years and they only serve two terms.
We still see doctors using the Hippocratic Oath. We use some math skills today like PI, Pythagorean, theorem, and skills studying geometry.
Some books and movies that we have today of Ancient Greece are Hercules and Percy Jackson. We still Study the Greek Mythology today.
We still have the Olympics today. We have many of the same events that they had in Ancient Greece like Javelin, Running, Shot Put, and Long Jump. At the country fairs they still do horse racing.
