In this lesson students learn about Ancient Greek religious beliefs, how religion was important in Ancient Greek society, and how Ancient Greek religion still affects our society today - a great introduction for any history or ELA class studying Ancient Greece.
The lesson is student-centered, engaging, and action-packed! My kids LOVE doing the "Which god should you call upon?" activity and finding the modern connections in the PowerPoint slideshow. Students also read the "Pluto and Persephone" myth and complete reading questions. Common Core aligned, and all teacher answer keys included!
