Ancient Greece covered more land than the modern Greece that we now know today because it included Italy, Turkey, and France. The land was better inland than around the coast, so inland is where they grew wheat for bread.

Greek women wore long tunics called chitons, and long cloaks over their shoulders. Young men wore short tunics, while older men preferred long ones. Slaves wore a strip of cloth called a loincloth. Boys went to school, while girls stayed at home and learned household chores, like cooking and cleaning. At school, boys learned reading, writing, math, music, and poetry. They used a clay tablet for writing and a pointed stick, called a stylus, for writing. For math, they used a abacus. They also did athletics in gymnasiums to prepare to fight in wars.
