Greek Mythology

Grade 4 students have been studying Greek Mythology in English class.  They have read myths, created their own myths, and researched Gods, heroes, and beasts.  The culminating activity of our unit was to dress up as Gods and invite 5th graders to a party on Mt. Olympus.  The 5th graders came as humans or demi-Gods.  As we dined on ambrosia and nectar, all students introduced themselves in character.  They shared their name, family history, special talents, and regaled us with stories of their past adventures.
