The 4th Grade English Class Olympian Gods Present Their Research Work and Costumes.

On Wednesday November 4th, the 4th Grade English class proudly presented their Greek God/Goddess. The 4th Grade English class has been deeply engaged in a Greek Mythology unit. Students have been examining Greek Mythology since September. They began the unit with a quick introduction of the most famous Gods and Goddesses and then examined the family tree (which is not easy!). Students then chose a God or Goddess that they would research in depth during class. They then explored some of the many Greek Myths including Pandora's Box, The Chariot and the Sun, Eros and Psyche, and King Midas and his 'golden touch'.  Also, during this unit, students have been preparing their 'costumes' at home for the presentation of their Greek God/Goddess. Currently, students are acting out plays in class about the Greek Myths.

 Can you tell who is Aphrodite, Hermes, Athena, Artemis, Ares, Eros, Hestia, Demeter, and Dionysis?  

 Students presented their research in front of all of the school's English classes

 But even the Gods still have time to have fun
