Fun Facts about ancient Greece. On slide 3, the slideshare people messed up how many times it says "(the gods of Olympus). Also, on slide 14 the slideshare people "accidentally" Messed up A LOT of things! They cut out "Parthenon", and wrote "(A Greek Temple)" too many times and wrote it over the bullet. I am very sorry about the slideshare people.
