Greek Hero Project
Option #1

After learning about Greek heroes in myths read in class you will create your own version of a Greek hero. This hero can be a human, god, or creature. You will need to tell the story of how your hero overcame the obstacles he/she faced and share this story through a comic strip, picture book, essay or any other creative method.*
Option #2

The Ancient Greeks told the stories of their gods, heroes, and monsters orally. This meant that there would sometimes be many different versions of a story depending on the region. This tradition continues today as many authors, such as Rick Riordan, twist the Greek myths in creative ways. Take your favorite story from Ancient Greece and retell it in your own words. You can share your revamped version through a comic strip, picture book, essay or any other creative method.*
