Walk your students through a basic understanding of the 12 mythological gods and goddesses with a creative twist. For each power point slide on the particular god or goddess I have attached a youtube link of a famous song that illustrates the power, flaw, or overall theme of that god or goddess. I found this powerpoint to be incredibly effective as an introduction to mythology and my students loved it! They laugh at the incorporation of song, but low and behold weeks later as we are moving through short stories they begin making connections to the powerpoint from weeks prior. It is one of my favorite lessons! When they think of Zeus suddenly "I'm the Man" by Aloe Blacc will pop into their heads or perhaps when they think of Hera the song "Don't Mess with my Man" by Nivea will remind them of her jealous vengeance.
