We completed the "characters" associated with Hercules today in class!

Dear Mythology Kids,

I am so proud of those that presented concerning Heracles; you have clearly done your research! In preparation for your quiz on Thursday, I have included a "practice quiz" for you below.


For those of you you missed class today, Thursday, November 11th we discussed the following characters associated with Heracles.....Nessus/Geryon/ Hebe/ Muses. In order to be prepared for the quiz on Monday, I would contact a friend that is currently in Mythology, or learn more about the characters through research. We also started our discussion concerning characters associated with Odysseus (Lotus-eaters/Laestragonians/Polyphemus/Aelous).
