The Geography of Greece

Learning to: Identify the geographic factors that contribute and impede the spread of the people in Greece

Looking for: Mountains, lack of fertile soil




Mountains shaped Greek history because...

-About 66% of the Greek mainland is

mountainous.

-Isolated different city-states


Lack of fertile soil shaped Greek history because...

-People settled along the narrow coast

-Limited soil allowed for growing cash crops but needed to acquire grain crops

-Irregular coastline allowed for easy shipping of products

Greece’s mountains made it hard for its early people to develop a sense of unity

-Short Mountain Ranges

-Kept villages apart

Rivers were short and did not aid in travel between villages

The geography tells us a lot about how the early

Greeks developed
