1.It is called the Golden Age because during the Golden Age Athens grew rich from trade and sliver mined by slaves.

2.Pericles is a member of an aristocratic family but supported democracy.Democracy is where the people of the state or city-state can choose there own leader.

4.Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle where all philosophers. They questioned a bunch of people and soon Socrates was sentenced to drink a cup of poison because he was questioning the peoples beleifs. Then Plato his student wrote the society should be made up of three groups: workers, soldiers, and philosopher-rulers. Then Plato's student Aristotle founded a school named the Lyceum.

3.One religious beleif in Athen's is Mythology.

5.The Greek arts are interesting because when you see a Greek building you know its Greek because there are a bunch of coulums. Another way to show why Greek arts is interesting if you look at the statues they build you can tell the women or man is very well built as in they look very strong and healthy.
