                     Ancient Greece Olympics


My unproject will be about the Ancient Greece Olympics. Which will include the Olympic symbol, the Olympic torch, a couple of the games they played in the Olympic Games in Ancient Egypt, like for example; Wrestling ,which is no longer in the Olympic games in the present . I will also include, what they won instead of the metals we get now, which are bronze, silver and gold metals, but in Ancient Greece it was different. I will include information for the events I picked, including the subjects I said on top, like the Olympic Symbol.
I will also put 1 fact or something about why the ancient Greeks had an Olympics somewhere below

Olympic Symbol

The Olympic symbols are icons, flags and symbols are used by the International Olympic Committee to promote the Olympic Games. Like as the flame, fanfare, and theme - are more common during Olympic competition, but others, such as the flag, can be seen throughout the year.







Torches

For the ancient Greeks, fire had divine connotations. It was thought to have been stolen from the gods by Prometheus.











Wrestling

 Ancient Greek Wrestling was the most popular organized sport in Ancient Greece. A point was scored when one player touched the ground with his back, hip, shoulder, or tapped out due to a submission-hold or was forced out of the wrestling-area. Three points had to be scored to win the match. One particularly important position in this form of wrestling was one where one of the contestants was lying on his belly with the other on his back trying to strangle him. The athlete on the bottom would try to grasp an arm of the one on top and turn him over onto his back while the athlete on top would try to complete the choke without being rolled.

Fact
The ancient Greeks throughout time always valued a healthy body. They thought it was honoring the Greek gods when they kept in shape. The Greeks were also very competitive and loved sports. They figured that it would be honoring the gods if they tied the two together. The result came to be the Olympics. This sporting event honored the god Zeus who lived on mount Olympus.

Filipe's Ancient Greek Unproject script

Information for my Ancient Greece talk show. DONT MAKE IT BORING.

PUT EVERYTHING INTO OWN WORDS LATER

ANY TOPIC.
http://www.greekmythology.com/Olympians/Zeus/zeus.html
Information on Zeus

Zeus was the god of the sky and ruler of the Olympian gods. He overthrew his father, Cronus, and then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades, in order to decide who would succeed their father on the throne. Zeus won the draw and became the supreme ruler of the gods, as well as lord of the sky and rain. His weapon was a thunderbolt which he hurled at those who displeased or defied him, especially liars and oathbreakers. He was married to Hera but often tested her patience, as he was infamous for his many affairs. Zeus is also called Jupiter, Dias.

Information on Poseidon

Poseidon is the god of the sea and protector of all aquatic features. Brother of Zeus and Hades, after the overthrow of their father, Cronus, he drew lots with them to share the universe. He ended up becoming lord of the sea. He was widely worshipped by seamen. He married Amphitrite, one of the granddaughters of the Titan Oceanus.
Poseidon is also called Neptune.


http://www.greekmythology.com/Olympians/Hades/hades.html
Information on Hades
Hades was the brother of Zeus and Poseidon. After the overthrow of their father, Cronus, he drew lots with them to share the universe. He drew poorly, which resulted in becoming lord of the underworld and ruler of the dead. Nevertheless, he was not considered to be death itself, as this was a different god, called Thanatos. Greedy like his brother Poseidon, he was mainly interested in increasing his subjects, and anyone whose deeds resulted in people dying was favoured by him. The Erinnyes (the Furies) were welcomed guests in his kingdom. 
 Hades is also called Pluto, Dis Pater, Orcus, Plouton.

3 of the most famous gods I would say.

My Stop Motion of Ancient Egypt

Neith Stop Motion Zack

Understanding the Video
Neith was a god of hunting primarily. So in the video, I decided to have Neith creating a bow (her signature weapon). Then evil Egyptian guys show up and attack her. She was also a goddess of war so she could fight them.
That's it.
