Our region of study will be the Greek City State Sparta, at the time period 650 BCE. We will also compare the other Greek City State Athens who was powerful. The prevalent religion was Greek polytheism, many gods and goddesses such as Zeus, Hades, etc. Sparta was an oligarchy with 2 hereditary kings, whose families were supposed descendants of Hercules. The language spoken was a Dialect of Ancient Greek called Doric Greek. Spartan citizens were not allowed to partake in trades or manufacturing so this task was given to the free-Greeks that occupied the land. Helots were a conquered group of people who were subservient to Spartans and who did many remedial jobs and had restricted rights compared to Perioikos and the Spartan citizens. Spartan men were full time soldiers. Spartan women were given many rights and had a high authority. Athenian lifestyle differed significantly and was focused around the central idea of democracy. Athenian citizens were encouraged to trade, prided themselves in their culture/architecture and their women had less rights then Spartan women.

Students will understand that different places and times in history have their own human characteristics.

Students will identify the major human characteristics of the Spartan/Athenian Society and write about what each characteristic means.

There were many groundbreaking technological advancements in this era. The ancient Greeks pioneered cranes, hydraulics (water mills and special devices to harness power from fast rivers), drills, weapons, armor, telecommunications techniques, agricultural and medical devices and many other things. The Athenians were at the forefront of these discoveries and capitalized on all advancements and ideas. The Spartans did not like the idea of new ideas and technology corrupting their citizens. They could be described as being very strict and minimalist. Spartans perfected warring strategy, and were masters of hand to hand combat.

The definition of technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry.



Students will understand how technology affects different societies.

Students will investigate different technologies that were invented or advanced in the time period of the Ancient Greek civilizations under study. One topic will then be chosen as the classroom debate topic and students will be split into different sides to argue the positives or the negatives. Students will create a pro’s and con’s chart and list at least 3 examples in each column about the effects of a certain technology. (E.g. Technology Change: Overhead Crane. Positives: movement of large resources from side to side and overhead. Negatives: trees cut down and other resources harvested to build crane, and slave labor provided.)

Hydraulics

I can talk about good and bad changes that happen to a community when technology changes (address the effect of technology on Sparta and Athens).

We will evaluate how the Spartans perceived the world by looking at their experience and culture. Everyone comes from a certain culture and their own biases are shaped from their background and experiences. Culture is the shared ideas, values, beliefs or a certain people regardless of race or ethnicity. Perception is the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses. Perspective is a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something. To get an accurate picture of the Spartan culture and daily lives follow this LINK.


Students will understand that people view others through the lenses of their own unique experience and culture.

Students will evaluate the Spartan culture and lifestyle and analyze their perceptions of the surrounding regions by writing an essay from the perspective of a Spartan citizen about their interaction with another group of people or place (could be another city-state like Athens or a distant region, student’s choice).

I can talk about how culture and experiences can change the way we see different environments.

A population pyramid shows the various age groups in a population, normally distinguishing between male and female. It is normally a back to back bar graph that indicates reproductive patterns and can show indications of major events, e.g. spike in youth population following the cold war. For all vocabulary words, follow this link. Spartan society had a high infant mortality and child mortality for both boys and girls. It was also very common for mothers to die in birth during this time period. Being a nation that was constantly at war trying to conquer more land and fend off enemies the military age males died frequently. The information we use to gather population data and mortality rates was not around in Ancient Sparta so we can only construct our population pyramid based off what we know about their culture and the time period.



Students will understand that we can show and study human populations over time on charts and graphs.

Each student will construct a population pyramid for a different region and explain to their classmates why it has that shape and what it means.

Population Pyramid

Age Distribution

Expansive

Stationary



Constrictive

I can make a population pyramid and I can tell you information about a region based on the pyramid. I can also interpret graphs others make.
