Text 1 The wooden horse of Troy The Greeks won many important battles. However, they could not break down the walls of Troy.Just as the Greeks wanted to give up and go home, Odysseus came up with a plan to get the Greeks army into Troy. The Greeks built a huge wooden horse and soldiers hid inside it.After leaving the horse at the gates of Troy, the Greek army sailed away.
The next morning, the people of Troy woke and saw a huge wooden horse standing outside the city gates. What is this ? Where did it come from? asked the people. The wooden horse did not move.The people of Troy thought the Greeks had given up and had left the horse as a gift. Finally,they opened the gates and dragged the wooden horse into the city. The people walked around the horse.They touched it. It didnt seem to do anything !They did not know that there were men hiding inside the horse.
