Moving back to Lima, Peru, interrupted our Greek mythology unit, but we have managed to read about more Greek gods, including Poseidon (God of the Seas), Athena (Goddess of Wisdom), Hades (God of the Underworld), Demeter (Goddess of the Harvest), Apollo (God of Music) and Artemis (Goddess of the Hunt).
Marcus decided his favorite so far is Apollo, and he did some additional research about Apollo on the National Geographic Kids website which you can find HERE. Then he wrote a persuasive essay about Apollo being the best Greek god. His three arguments were that Apollo was an excellent archer (he compared his archery skills to Hawkeye of the Avengers); Apollo could charm the muses who would dance to his music; and Apollo was completely loyal to his father, Zeus.
Marcus made another Greek craft for his distance history class. He designed four Greek columns (Doric, Ionic, Corinthian and Caryatid)
Aren’t they cute? He even made sure they could hold up something.
And that was week two of our Greek Mythology unit.
