English - Copywork & Dictation : Ancient Greek Olympics

From Story of the World Vol 1 by Susan Wise Bauer...

The Olympics were held every four years for almost a thousand years! People came from all over Greece to compete in the games and to watch the other athletes. They all camped out at the Games and spent their evenings feasting and listening to music. Poets would recite poems and stories out loud to entertain the crowds. These poems and stories were like movies to the ancient Greeks.
