OMG!!! Did you know that ancient Greek culture is still all around us? Help show your students that ancient Greek mythology is still alive and well through this fun internet-based activity. In this assignment, students use the internet to research where popular names used for today's businesses came from; there are 17 in all, but a few include Amazon, Ajax, Echo, Saturn, etc. Students never cease to be amazed at the connection American culture has to that of ancient Greek gods and goddesses. For a finishing activity, there are directions (and another, more exhaustive list of gods/goddesses) for students to create their own product named after a mythological Greek character of their choosing!
