Fantastic CCSS primary source reading on The Making of Spartan Soldiers! This one page excerpt from Plutarch describes how the ancient Spartans would train their army to be the most disciplined in the world. Includes a set of review questions to gauge student understanding. Great for a unit on Ancient Greece!
