Greek Cultural Contributions
We see Greek influence in architecture today in important buildings. The White House, Capital Building, Supreme Court, and the Lincoln Memorial all have columns that show Greek influence.
Like Ancient Greeks we have a democracy, where people vote on everything. We also have to be 18 to participate in government issues. Our presidents term limits can only be elected twice, and they are president for 4 years.
We still have somethings like Greek mythology today like the book and movie Percy Jackson, and the movie Hercules. Also, we still learn about them today.
We still use Greek philosophy today in math and health. PI was originally Ancient Greek philosophy. In health, we still use the Hippocratic oath. Also, in geometry we have the Pythagorem theory.
Most of the sports they played are still in the Olympic games that we still have today. At some high-school and college track events they still have the long jump, javelin, shot put, running. Horse racing is still popular today at fairs, derbies, and lots of other places.
