Final Project for The Lightning ThiefBy Rick Riordan Mrs. Fukushima’s 6th Grade English Class
The Assignment: We’ve just finished our unit on Greek Mythology, ending the unit with the reading of the book, The Lightning Thief . We’ve discussed why the Greeks created the gods and goddesses (to explain natural occurrences and human behavior), but WHO were they? Your job is to become an expert on a greek god/goddess and give their significance to the ancient Greeks. www.onlinegamesinn.com/showgame3890/Gods%20War
What is expected? You will research your assigned god/goddess using the literature found in our class AND the internet. Following the list provided for you, you are to create a Power Point presentation of the information you found. www.wordchowder.com/Greek_Mythology.html www.flickr.com/photos/neobloom/1383306303/
