This is set of 9 funny multiple choice questions that ask students what they would do if they were stuck in some of Odysseus' situations. It's meant to mimic the personality tests often found in magazines and serves as an introduction to The Odyssey and Odysseus. It makes kids laugh, and I like to see what kids fill in for the "insert your own answer" questions. The activity is goofy, but we all laugh and learn a bit about the basic plot of The Odyssey.
When you go over the answers, students gain an understanding of who Odysseus is before they start the book. This activity only takes about 10-15 minutes depending on how long you decide to take to discuss the students' answers to each question.
This product comes with two bonus activities! The first is a list of creative writing prompts (with simple rubric) for The Odyssey and the second is a graphic organizer to help students compare The Odyssey to The Spongebob Squarepants Movie.
