Athens Daily Life Women In the Athens daily life the women stayed home, looked after their children, made there food such as bread, cheese and olives and they made their own clothing. The women could not take place in a lot of things here are some of them government, politics, they could not own a block of land and they could not go to the local markets. Children The children who lived in Athens where home schooled by their mothers until they were 6 or 7 years old and the children learned how to write by writing on a wax covered table using a stylus. When the children were born they slept in wooden cradles or wicker baskets Men The men mostly where apart of war and being governments but some men where lazy and luxury. The slaves did everything the master told them to do. If the men weren't married their father controlled them and if they were married there wife did.
Athens Government One of the ways Athens and Sparta were different is because their form of government and the Athens did a vote and Sparta didn’t do a vote on things to decide. The government in Athens was really fair and fairly advanced and the government in Sparta was really unfair. Athens government was ruled by a archons, who were elected by the public. Athens Government wanted to control more and more of the land around them. The Government in Athens made a decision that the woman, children, slaves and Greeks from different states could not vote. In 510 BC the government in Athens created the first democracy and later on different Greek city's started having democracies. City States that weren't Greek like Carthage and Rome experimented with the poor people by giving them more power.
Children In Sparta the boys were grown up to be a soldier. When the young boys in Sparta turned 7 years old they were sent to a brotherhood camp and when they turned 14 they could stop learning to read if they wanted to. Women If the women had baby's the soldiers would come to check them and if they were un healthy they would get left in a room to die or grown up to be slaves. The women had to do heaps of active sports so there baby's would be nice and healthy when they were born. Men Men lived in military camps until they were 30 years old and they could not become a citizen and get married until they were 30. Men mostly exercised every day to come fit and they played war games. Sparta's daily life
Sparta's Government The government wanted to make the men strong and tough. The government really only focused on the war in Sparta. The government made the men grow up as a warrior and to be proud, fierce, capable and the girls had to grow up to be a mother and a warrior. Sparta also had council members that created laws as well as the government. Sparta was ruled by two kings which was a hereditary and a monarch they ruled Sparta until they died if they died people put in a form to try and be the next government you had to be 60 or older to qualify. If the community wanted to make a decision they weren't aloud they only could shout out yes or no.
