Discovering Ancient Greece
Ms. Kerlek’s 6th grade students have been studying ancient Greece. The students were asked to choose one of twelve Olympian Greek gods and goddesses and write a research report that included information about the god/goddess such as genealogy, his or her powers, myths associated with them, and the temple constructed for them. Next, the students created a 3D likeness of their god /goddess, and made a “fun facts” card to attach to their project. Students presented their projects and research facts to their classmates. Their gods and goddesses, along with their fun facts, are currently on display in the middle school hallway.
