Summarize what you think life was like for people in Athens. Include men, women, citizens, non-citizens, and children.  Remember when you summarize something it requires more than one sentence.

    I think life in Athens was pretty easy for men,women,children,and non-citizens. The women weren't treated the same as men. They couldn't vote, and they had to do house chores. The male kids were educated.

    Life in Athens was pretty good for most people. Men who are citizens were educated and lead a comfortable life. Women didnt have rights, but were treated kindly and with respect.. People who werent citizens were treated not as well as citizens, but better than a non citizen would be treated i n Sparta. Children had a much better life than children in Sparta. Children who were citizens were educated, if they were a boy and girls were delicate flowers.

    I think that life for the Athens sucked.Men and women werent treated as equals,guys got to do all the fun stuff while girls had to sit inside and look pretty.Sure they didnt have to work but still! I bet girls got bored really fast,I know i would.They couldnt even learn.While boys were taught by there mothers from 6-7,then from7-14 went to a day school outside of there home.

      Life in Athens was good for almost everyone. Men who are citizens were educated and lead a comfortable life. Women didnt have rights, but were treated kindly and with respect.. People who weren't citizens were treated not as well as citizens, but better than a non citizen would be treated i n Sparta. Children had a much better life than children in Sparta.

    I think it would be hard to live in Athens because they did not treat the women right so I think it would be hard.

    I think that life in Athens was bad. Women wasnt treated equal to men. Men went out and done what they wanted while the girls stayed home and worked.

    I think life in Athens would be easy for the women, and the guys do most of the work. The children are treated better in Athens than in Sparta.

    I think life in Athens may have been pleasent for the men and male children as the women constantly babied them, cleaned after them, and cooked for them. All male citizens were educated and young girls trained in the olympics, that was about the most they could do.
