Me and my friend, Sabrina, skyped a class in Dublin, Ohio, to help the class learn about Greece. We discussed the geography of Greece with them and how the geographical features affected the way the people in each city-state lived. For example, Athens had a water source and Sparta had large mountains surrounding them. Then we introduced the basics of Greek government to them because they hadn't studied it yet. But first, we asked them what kind of governments they had learned about last year, and they mentioned some, such as monarchy, theocracy, democracy, and oligarchy. We then proceeded to discuss the government of the USA, a representative democracy. After that background of different types of government, we went on to introduce them to the governments of two city-states in Greece: Athens and Sparta. For each city-state, we talked about the way they made decisions and who were the citizens. Afterwards, we answered any questions the teacher or students had. Overall, I think this was a fun and really cool experience because we got to interact with new students we had never seen before and it was really fun to teach them about things! :)
