This paper tells you about the Golden Age of Greece which is from 500 to 350 BC It tells about what Greeks did who they worshipped and other important things The thing the Greeks are best known for is their gods and stories about them The stories explained how things became For instance one story said that before the earth was made there was a fight between a god and a giant The god killed the giant and the parts of the giant became the earth His teeth became the rocks and his hair became the grass His hands and feet became mountains and his toes and fingers became trees Some of the gods were Zeus who was the ruler of all the gods Hera was his wife and Hermes was his messenger Artemis was the goddess of the moon and Apollo was the god of the sun Poseidon was the god of the sea Loki the god of mischief and Dionysus the god of wine The Greeks made sacrifices to the gods so that the gods would honor them and help them in times of trouble They sacrificed animals and other things that were special to them The Greeks built temples where they worshipped the gods Each city had several temples because each temple was used to worship one god In each temple there was a statue of a god that they worshipped They had an extra big temple and statue for the god that guarded their city The Greeks had lots of heroes who were like role models for their children Hercules was the strongest man ever and destroyed many monsters with his strength Perseus had killed a monster called the Medusa If someone looked at it they would immediately turn to stone Oddysseus beat the Trojans in the Trojan war and on his way home with his cunning tricked and killed many monsters
