Archtecture

Greek architecture is known for its columns . There are three types of columns:Doric, Iconic, and Corinthian. Other types of Greek art include: pottery, sculptures, and paintings. Every 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 influences Europe in architectures today in important buildings. The white House, capital Building, Supreme court and the Lincoln Memorial all have columns that show Greek influences.

Goverment

Greeks had lots of different kinds of government because of there different city-states, they also had there government. Aristotle divided Greek government into menarches, Obliges, Tyrannies, and democracies.

Leaders and expected of the citizen were, Only men who completed the military training were able to vote or be a leader. men over 18 could vote, But no women could vote at all.1 year leader were chosen from a hat.(lottery).

We have democracy too.(people to participate had to be 18 year or older to vote.) Presidents change every four years. You can only go twice a year to be president.

Men only played sports in ancient Greece. They played like running, jumping, shot put, and javelin. It was belief of Greek society it was to test physical and mental discipline, and gods loved seeing strong and healthy men.
