What did I miss on Monday, March 30th?

Dear Mythology Kids,
STOP MISSING CLASS, guys! Norse Mythology is so unusual that missing class will only be a determint to your future success. If you did miss class:

1. You have an assignment that is due on WEDNESDAY that involves some research. Each student has a tag on their desk with one of the Norse gods written on the tag. Your assignment is to research this particular god, and prepare a handout with your findings.

Marlyse: You have Freyja (equivalent to Aphrodite)
Andrea: You have Frigg (equivalent to Hera)

No one was absent! Yes!


The following is an explanatino of your assignment:
The ttag you have on your desk is important for your assignment. You are being asked to do some research on one of the Norse gods. You have ___________________. The Greek god is included simply to help you make a connection.

1. You are to locate at least TWO SOURCES pertainting to your god. One must be the Internet; the other should be a book or periodical. Your book is a strong source. A great Internt source is "Norse Gods vs. Greek Gods." You are welcome to use my books, but you won't be able to check them out; however, you can find the information that you need after school, make your copies, and then bring the books back. The copy center is open until 3 p.m.

2. This is what should be included on your handout:
a. A handout that thoroughly details information you discovered about your god. The handout should be neat, organized, typed, numbered points, and include specifics on your deity (domain, physical appearance, abilities, enemies, children, likes/dislikes, etc.)

b. Works cited information included on the handout

c. Two copies of your handout (0ne is for me and the other to use as a reference in class)

d. Come prepared as the "expert" on your Norse god

2. You are also to continue making cards for the characters that we discuss today. You will have a quiz on Friday covering the Norse gods and the information discussed today (Monday) and the information that will be shared on Wednesday.

Your FINAL exam!

Dear Mythology Kids, It's nice to "see" you again. Let me offer some "study guidance" for your final exam. Please ...
