Greece

The people in Greece made the map so it would be easier for them to travel. The first person in Greece is Anaximander. The first maps were not accurate because the maps were made with what the maker think the earth looks like.

Today

We still use maps sometimes, but mostly we use Google map on our phone. The map in our phone was very accurate because there is a satellite in space. There is also GPS which is an app where it will lead you to the place you want to go.

The Colosseum which is a place where men fight with animals. This building was created in 70 AD. Sometimes they show men fight with other men. This place is usually very violent.

Today

You can still go into the Colosseum, but not for watching the people get killed. We can get tickets to go inside and check out the art of the building.
