The Odyssey Activity: Planning Odysseus's Funeral (Creative Thinking!)

The Odyssey Activity: Planning Odysseus's Funeral (Creative Thinking!)
Product Description
After finishing The Odyssey, I like to ask my students to complete an activity that requires planning and some creative thought: I ask them to plan Odysseus's funeral. While he doesn't die in the epic poem, I ask them to imagine that he has lived a long life and that they are the ones who need to plan his funeral.

Is it a little morbid? Yes, but my students really enjoy this activity! All parts of the "funeral" relate directly to Odysseus's character and students must defend each decision.
