Ancient Greek Mythology: Activities, Handouts, and Projects

This Greek Mythology resource package provides students with everything they need to complete an integrated Social Studies, English, and Art unit on Ancient Greek Myths. I love being able to show students the connections between different subject areas, and this is a really effective way to do that. The hands-on activities included in this package ensure that engagement and motivation is high, and make perfect additions to your Ancient Greece mythology unit or Ancient Greece mythology interactive notebooks!

All of the activities included in this resource package can be used with any version of the classic Greek myths! This package can be used on its own, or makes an excellent addition to a Social Studies Unit on Ancient Greece! Lots of great writing activities are included!

All activities are classroom tested and include creative handouts, information sheets, detailed instructions, templates, and rubrics. Very little teacher prep is needed – simply print and teach!

This creative and engaging package includes the following:

Olympian Descriptions: Students use the included grid template to help them research the Gods of Mount Olympus. A detailed answer key is included! This chart really helps students keep their facts straight, and is a great test review tool!

Greek Mythology Foldable Library Pockets: Students research information about important figures from Greek Mythology, and use the information they discover to create foldable library pockets! First, students simply cut out, fold, and tape together the included library pocket templates. Then, students use the included character library card to write down important facts about their characters. Last, students glue the included picture of their character to the front of their library pocket. Students love these pockets because they are a different and creative way to record information. Teachers love these pockets because the end results are informative and beautiful! A template is included for each of the following characters: Odysseus, Medusa, Athena, Achilles, Hercules, Orpheus, Pegasus, Icarus, and Zeus. A black pocket template is also included, so you can have students research a character of your choice.

Create Your Own Mythological Monster Project: Students learn about Mythical Monsters and create Monsters of their own using found objects. Students then use their creative writing skills to write about their creations. These monsters make gorgeous hallway displays!!! A sample monster write-up, Steve the Grass Monster, is included to help inspire students and get their creative juices flowing! Informational handout with detailed information about various monsters from Greek Mythology is included, to help students come up with ideas.

Mythology Puppet Show: Students use their knowledge of Ancient Greek Myths to create Puppet Shows to present to the class. Students must write scripts and create their own puppets. A puppet template is included. A great way to introduce students to a number of Greek mythological tales!

Mythological Character Cube Foldable: Students create foldable 3D cubes with information and illustrations about characters from Greek Mythology. Completed cubes can be hung from the classroom roof, or stacked to make an eye-catching classroom display! 3D foldable cube template and rubric are included!

Hero Wanted Poster: Students brainstorm heroic qualities and create a wanted poster for their ideal hero. This makes a great introductory activity to the heroes of Greek Mythology!
