Greece, Myths and a Golden Touch


One of our school annual projects is working crosscurricular in our EFL/ ESL classes.

So, these are some of the activities we did at school while reading Athena


We ..
  • made predictions. The kids looked at the cover of the book and told what they think the story would be about.
  • went on a picture walk through the book.  We didn't read the text, just looked at each picture and told what they thought is happening in each picture.
  • cololored the cover of our folder.
  • talked about common themes in myths such as faith, love, heroism, sacrifice
  • performed Reader's Theater with some of the Greek Myths
  • choose their favorite myth character (god or goddess= and dress up as that character. 
  • researched clothing in Ancient Greece to design their own costume and had a fashion show.
  • graphed our favorite outfit
  • read different versions of the story
  • used the vocabulary cards to review and practice vocabulary
  • used the necklace to recall the events of the story. 
  • sorted the words by beginning sounds, syllables, short or long words
  • compared different characters
  • investigated about the Greek alphabet
  • found Greece in a map
  • made puppets with craft sticks to sequence events
