This classroom strategy game integrates Greek mythology with simple math skills. Pretending they are in the world of Greek mythology, students must use a limited building budget to determine which temples should be built to which Greek gods and goddesses. Each god or goddess gives a reward with each temple built, but beware: Any god or goddess who is temple-less at the end of the game also exacts a cruel revenge. The player with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner! Students can compete against one another or against the entire class.
This activity makes a great addition to any Greek mythology or ancient Greece unit. Its cross-curricular nature also engages math-oriented students as well.
