Greek Gods

Author: Taejin Chun
Description:

During our Greek God project, students will break up into 5 groups of 5.  Each group will use a computer to research a Greek God or Goddess of their choosing.  The objective of this project is to become familiar with a Greek God or Goddess, create a poster emphasizing a single characteristic or detail, and then presenting the information to the class.  Basically, you will teach us something we didn't already know.

 

Day 1: Class will spend time researching their Greek God or Goddess.  Each group will have access to a computer, 3 textbooks, and 1 other book on Greek Mythology.

Suggested research websites:

Day 2: Each group will put there research together in a collaborative Google Doc where they will each spend a few minutes on the computer inputting their research in a paragraph form.  They will then spend the class period working on their posters.

Day 3: Each group will present their Greek God or Goddess and each member will present their detail or characteristic.
