A two-sided pre-reading activity that I use with The Lightning Thief with my middle school students. Lists over 25 Greek gods, goddesses, and creatures, many of which students will encounter in their reading of the novel. Students check whether or not the name is familiar, and jot notes down in a "What (I think) I know" section of the chart. I do not correct students at this point. Students enjoy sharing out, and going back after their reading to see all that they have learned. It also serves to get students interested and intrigued in the novel! Enjoy!
