This is a collection twelve close readings, each one dealing with a different Olympian god from Greek mythology. These close readings ask students to consider not only who these gods were, but also why they were culturally important to the ancient Greeks. Students are asked to highlight key facts from the readings, and use what they read to better understand how the Greeks used stories of the gods to help them better understand the world around them
The twelve close readings are on the following gods:
Also included is an instruction sheet asking students to complete an art assignment with their god as well, either coloring a picture, making a paper mask, writing their own story, or creating a clay sculptor.
This pack is a great supplemental activity to be done within a unit that covers ancient Greece.
