Week Three: The Greeks


 

Remember when you read all those cool stories back in 9th grade? (or even earlier?) The stories about the Greek gods are pretty entertaining...how the really great mortals made it to hero status...The lightening bolts! The golden fleece! Medusa's head!


In Week Two you checked out the Greek Creation Myths. In Week THREE, you will read about Prometheus, watch a video about the Greeks, write a 1-page opinion essay in this week's Muses Moment  AND BEGIN the first PROJECT!


Assignments This Week:

Read The Myth of Prometheus (in Google Classroom) AND

      Go to Google Classroom to fill out the questions about Prometheus.   (Code for GC Online Myth is  hhses3f)
