Greece has many different interesting facts about it's country and culture.Here are some interesting facts about Greece. I learned this information in pages 300 to 305 in our Humanities textbook. First, in ancient times, there was no such thing as Greece. There was only people who spoke Greek spread all over the islands and coasts of the Mediterranean Sea. An early civilization called the Minoans influenced the Greeks. The Minoan towns and palaces were destroyed, eventually. It was most-likely that the mainland Greeks did this. The Minoans influenced a civilization that developed around 1600 B.C. This civilization developed among the Greek speakers an the mainland in Greece.
In Humanities class, we are doing a lot of interesting and very fun things. Here is what we're doing. We got separated into city-states. My city-state is Megara. We have to wear something as a symbol of unity within our city-state. We gain and loose points by doing activities such as tongue-twisters and fates. Our groups also have a logo, a chant, or some sort of secret handshake. All of the city-states are competing against each other to get the most points and win.
