Sixth grade students in Ericker Jackson’s and Karen Naquin’s Social Studies classes participated in a mock Ancient Greek Olympics.

Students studied the Ancient Greeks and did research on the contributions that the Greeks made to the world. Students also learned about the origin of the Olympics in Greece. The two teams were divided into Athens and Sparta (large city-states in ancient Greece). The events were patterned after actual events that took place in Athens.

The events were broomstick javelin, running sideways and the discuss toss. Scores were kept and tallied. Sparta was known for its brawn but in the end the Athenians, known for their brains, won. Winners were awarded candy gold coins.
