Greek Myth Enthusiasts

I know we've got some Percy Jackson fans in our class, and more who are interested in the Greek Mythology.  Persue your interests!

Stornory has many myths to listen to or download

Here are some flashcards I found that have many of the characters names and attributes.  Print them out and play memory!

Greek Mythology Flash Cards - print baseball type cards about the characters

Memory Game Flash Cards - print baseball type cards about the characters

Parents, we can't always spend as much time on a topic as we might like.  If you find your child has an interest, persue it at home by having them teach you, learn more, read additional books, etc!
