Students in the seventh grade worked with their literature groups to put together presentations on the main gods and goddesses of Greek mythology. Each presentation included a brief summary of each god’s myth, why each god is important/special, other characters mentioned in each myth, and a hand-drawn, colored picture of each god. Students also shared interesting information about each god that they wanted the class to remember.
Students were later tested on the information they taught each other. This assignment called for students to be creative, do some research, utilize their Google drives, and demonstrate their public speaking skills. The students did a wonderful job on their mythology presentations!
