Moving on to GREECE and ROME! We just finished learning about the Greeks yesterday. I have a love/hate relationship with these folks. Love because they are the one that introduce the idea of humanism, and that every human being is important. Hate because they made their women stay inside or completely covered at all times. It wasn't until the Hellenistic period that the women started being portrayed in the same way men were.
Their art is nothing but beautiful. Everything they did was perfect and of the highest quality. I love learning about the Spartans, the wars, Alexander the Great, the battle of Marathon.
I thoroughly enjoy this class. It may seem boring and difficult to some, but I really love the history behind all these different cultures.Can't wait to hear about those wacky Romans.
