Product Description

We often use words and phrases from Greek Mythology and do not even realize it! Have you ever said that you were "caught between a rock and hard place" when you had to make a tough decision? Or, did you ever comment that a friend of yours was so lucky that he seemed to have the Midas touch? If you said yes, then you have used an allusion to Greek myth!

Teach Your Students Something New and Then Have them Collaborate!

In this cooperative learning resource, I have made it easy for you introduce your students to common allusions to Greek myth. I find this lesson works best as a mini-project spread over the course of a week. Introduce your scholars to a few examples using my colorful shareable (works well in a 1:1 classroom). Then launch them on a research mission.

What's included when you purchase this resource:

  1. First, I have provided a flexible lesson to teach ten common words and phrases that originate from Greek myth.
  2. Second, I have given a ton of examples from sources that have used the expression.
  3. Third, based on this model, your students can then research in groups more information about each allusion and come up with other references to Greek mythology that exist (hint: there are more than ten).

This resource comes with the following features:

  • 1 sharable "10 Everyday words and phrases in Greek Mythology" informational text
  • 1 Graphic Organizer for your students' collaborative activity
  • *Editable Google Docs link* - this is useful if you want to tweak the resources to fit the needs of you and your students!
  • Pairs well with a unit in Ancient Greek History or Mythology or if you are reading Percy Jackson's The Lightning Thief.
