Product Description
An imaginative and creative thematic unit combining Social Studies, Greek Mythology, ELA Argumentative / Persuasive Writing and Art. Students first research several of the primary gods and goddesses of the Greek Pantheon and are asked to represent one of those deities in writing an argumentative / persuasive essay in which they explain why that deity would be most capable of ruling Mt. Olympus in Zeus’ place for one year. The lesson includes my hand-drawn depictions (uncolored) of the gods/goddesses that will be used to create life-size renderings that will hold each student’s essay. Students, faculty and parents can then vote on who should rule in Zeus’ stead based upon the merits of each essay. The lesson includes detailed, step by step lesson plans and all materials needed to complete the lesson, record sheets, answer keys, hand-outs, 9 Greek god/goddess drawings, and a rubric for argumentative/persuasive writing. The writing, artwork and theme of this lesson will make it an anticipated part of the school year for students, faculty and parents alike!
