Geography in Ancient Greece
By: Maya Gerke
Mountains made it hard to travel in Ancient Greece.
They grew olives, grains, and grapes.
They grew this because there was limited land available for farming.
These were easier to grow in the climate.
Helpful Geographical Features
The waterways linked most parts of Greece together.
The land was mountainous so farmers herded sheep and goats on hillsides. The shrubs in the hills gave the animals food.
It might be helpful for planes to make a layover in because it is scattered in the middle of Europe which is a good place to layover if you want to go to somewhere like Russia or somewhere in northern Asia.
The impact the geographical features had on the land was that it was a good location for trade so they got a to of goods.
Importance of Geographical Features
I would tell them the location of Greece and say that they are in a really good place to trade. They are in the middle of Europe.
