Greek Mythology Wordsearch Starter Activity Myths and Legends Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Greek Mythology Wordsearch Starter Activity Myths and Legends Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Greek Mythology'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Learning Greek The Fun Way! - Bundle

Learning Greek The Fun Way! - Bundle

Are you learning Greek? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Greek? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Greek. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Greek. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!
