You’re a god!
You’re a goddess!
Classwork due Thursday, Dec. 9
Option 1
Directions: Imagine yourself as a god or goddess. Oh, sorry, I forgot that
you already are! Anyway, create a picture of yourself as a Greek god or
goddess. You may draw yourself, cut out magazine clippings or use the
computer to create yourself as a god or goddess. Think about what you are
the god or goddess of (for example, Athena is the goddess of wisdom). On
the bottom of your picture, write at least 2 sentences stating what you are the god or
goddess of, including what your powers are, and why you chose to make
yourself the god or goddess of that.
Option 2
Directions: Imagine that a Greek god or goddess is a modern day person.
Draw, use magazine clippings or use the computer to create your Greek god or goddess as
a modern day person. Think about what they are the god or goddess of and use that to
show what they would be like as a person today. On the back are a list of Greek gods and
goddesses. You are not limited to these, they are just suggestions. You may also use any
other characters from Greek mythology that may be mortals, titans,
nymphs, cyclops or creatures (for example, Achilles, Paris, Hector,
Odysseus, Cronos, Atlas, Daphne). Look online for lists of Greek
mythological characters if you want to find someone different to do.
On the bottom of your picture, write at least 2 sentences stating what
Greek being you chose with a brief description of them then and now.
