QUIZ covering the characters associated with Heracles.....

Dear Mythology Kids,

If you missed class today, we completed the following:
1. Reviewed for the quiz by correcting the "practice quiz."
2. Completed and corrected the quiz concerning the characters associated with Heracles.
3. Presentations concerning the following characters:
  • Ariadne/Pan/Midas

  • Ariadne helping Theseus escape with the ball of twine.

    Pan, god of the woodlands, playing the Shrinx.

    Midas, the king with the "gift" of golden touch.

  • Medusa and the Graea (Grey Witches)

Graea, or Grey Witches, sisters to Medusa.

Medusa


Just a side note....Sierra and Celeste attempted to show B1 a clip from the Clash of the Titans re-make; however, the clip didn't work due to the block on YouTube. I suggest watching the movie clip at home. It contains a strong interpretation of Medusa!


HOMEWORK:

1. I gave each student, that was present, an "Underworld" assignment to review for Monday. If you missed class on Thursday, please stop by my room after school on Friday in order to obtain your peer review. THIS ASSIGNMENT IS DUE ON MONDAY, NOV. 23rd!

Cheers,

Crampton
