Greek Mythology

We have started on Greek Mythology. Students will be working on a project that is due Thursday. They are to choose a god or goddess from Greek/Roman mythology to research.
They must include on their poster, cube, PowerPoint, or trading cards.
1. The name and an illustration of the god or goddess.
2. An illustration of a myth in which the god/goddess appears. Be prepared to summarize or re-tell the myth to the class.
3. Include a family tree (brothers, sisters, parents, etc.).
4. Include any evidence of the god/goddess in the modern world. Think advertising…..Nike tennis shoes, Venus razors.
5. Include a map showing the location of the origin of your myth.

Grades will be based on accuracy of information, quality of information included and CREATIVITY!

I am sorry I have not updated the website this week. As you know this never happens but I have been very distracted with the 2 hour delay, presentations, and half day. Students have been working very hard on the presentations! I have been very pleased. Students who were not ready to present on Monday needed to work on their project at home. These projects (as well as their chapter sheets) were actually due on Friday. We cancelled the vocabulary project last week and students were to complete the worksheet for the following Monday. These words will be on the test on Friday. The vocabulary worksheet is Numbers 5-10. We will be working on these words today in the computer lab.
Thank You,
Mrs. King
