Greek #5

Greek Contributions:
  1. Democracy
  2. Olympic Games
  3. Philosophy
  4. Architecture
  5. Myths
Athens is said to be the birthplace of democracy and this is an important historical contribution because it lead to a more balanced form a government rather than just having one ruler.  The Olympic Games were another major contribituion because now we hold this major sporting event every four years where the best athletes across the world compete to become victorious.  Great minds lik Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle were the first to really philosophize and question life and its virtues.  Greeks were great architects and were able to create grand buildings such as The Colliseum.  Myths were told as they used stories to explain nature and how their gods held control on earth.
