Multi-layered and highly detailed survey of Homer's Odyssey! This fun-filled and creative unit plan includes no less than 3 Power point presentations filled with animations and images to aid students as they learn epic terms and historical and literary background info as well as a complete story outline. Interactive student activities include writing epithets, creating play dough models, maps, souvenirs, and writing a formal argumentative essay! The culminating creative project involves group collaboration to create and "pitch" an Odyssey-themed amusement park.
Students will read, view, write, think, plan, and create as they consider the relevance of The Odyssey to them today!
