This is a flyer on Ancient Greece. There are three parts: Athens' Rise to Power, The End of the Greek City-States, and The Heritage of the Ancient Greeks. In Athens' Rise to Power, I learned about why Athens is the most popular. In The End of the Greek City-States I learned about, well, exactly that, the end. Lastly, we talk about the heritage of the ancient Greeks
Athens' Rise to Power
A Greek city-state, Athens, was the most popular city-state at the time for many reasons. 1st of all, the people of Athens were the richest and most powerful people of the Greek city-states. They built the biggest fleet; bigger than all of the Greek fleets combined. 2nd, they became an imperial capital. Lastly, Athens was the birthplace of democracy. Only men could vote, though.
The End of the Greek City-States
Next, I'll talk about the end of the city-states. The city-states ended arround 362 BC, shortly before King Phillip II came into power. Then, before he could take over another pennisula, he died. Though only 19, Alexander came into power since his father died. He was known as Alexander the great because he controled most of the world known to the medditeranian people.
The Heritage of the Ancient Greeks
Lastly, we talk about the heritage of the Greeks. Genious men sprang up everywhere forming small groups. They believed in balance. Because of that, they provided both time to play and work. They also acted as teachers to other people.
So, in Athens' Rise to Power I learned about why Athens is popular in Greece. In The End of the Greek City-States I learned about the reign of King Phillip and his son, Alexander. Last, in The Heritage of the Ancient Greeks I learned about why Greece is pretty popular itself. Overall, in my opinion, Greece is pretty interesting. This is what I learned and what I hope you learn.
