Greek Mythology Creative Project: god and goddess Bumper Stickers

Students create "bumper stickers" using various literary devices to make their chosen god or goddess memorable. When I do this project, I simply cut cardstock in half and give it to students to decorate and write on. Example include: "Got Wheat?" (for Demeter), "Mighty Aphrodite!", "Are you Ridin' the waves with Poseidon?" This document includes project details, an easily modified grading rubric, and a practice section focusing on the use of literary devices in real world bumper stickers.

Ancient Greek Sports Worksheet

Ancient Greek Sports Festivals and Sports The ancient Greeks believed that strong healthy citizens helped strengthen the city-state. They often included sporting events in the festivals they held to honor their gods. The most famous sports festival was the Olympic games, held every four years. Records of Olympics winners started in 776 B.C. At first, the festival lasted only one day and had only one contest, a race called the stade. Later, many other events were added, including a long-distance race, wrestling, the long jump, the javelin, and the discus throw. The Olympics was expanded to five days in 472 B.C. Women’s Sports Women had their own sports festival in ancient Greece. It was the festival devoted to Hera, the wife of Zeus. Like the Olympics, the Hera festival was held every four years. One of the main events was a foot race for unmarried women. Discus Thrower Ancient athletes, such as this discus thrower, would be considered amateurs today because they received no pay for competing. However, they trained rigorously for months at a time. Victors were given lavish gifts and were hailed as heroes. Many athletes competed full-time Mount Olympus The ancient Olympics honored Zeus, the father of all Greek gods and goddesses. According to legend, Zeus hurled a thunderbolt from Mount Olympus at a spot in rural Greece. An altar for Zeus was built on that spot. Eventually, many buildings were erected around the altar. This area was called Olympia and became the site for the Olympic games. Questions: 1. Evaluating Decisions Do you think it was a good decision for the Greeks to add more sporting events to the Olympics? Explain. 2. Comparing and Contrasting How are today’s Olympics similar to and different from the Olympics in ancient Greece? Stearns, Peter N., Donald R. Schwartz, and Barry K. Beyer.

Mars Literature & CompositionQuick View

Mars Literature & Composition

Here are six pieces of writing about Mars, and six different writing assignments to go with them! Topics include: a Mars fantasy by Edgar Rice Burroughs, accidentally contacting a Martian, what was known about Mars in 1901, silly puns, the Greek Ares and Roman Mars, and voyaging to Mars on a home-made spaceship. Writing assignments vary – from writing a description of the first thing you would see if you suddenly landed on Mars, to writing a conversation between astronauts heading for Mars, to inventing puns, to comparing and contrasting Greek and Roman gods. An image of Mars is included to be used as decoration on the student’s notebook. Literature & Composition collections are suitable for students who are ready to read and study different types of literature in small quantities. For example, instead of an entire novel or scholarly work, a small sample of each (which can stand on its own) will be presented. This way, the intermediate student has an opportunity to stretch their reading abilities without being discouraged. Each book contains six different writing samples that share a common theme. The writing assignments vary in length and are intended to inspire the student to try writing in different forms and styles.

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy worksheetQuick View

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy worksheet

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy Background: Originally, Christianity had one church. Because of political conflicts and differences in belief, the western and eastern parts of the Christian Church split apart in 1054. The western church became the Roman Catholic Church, and the eastern church became the Eastern Orthodox Church. Both churches believe in the gospel of Jesus and in the Bible as interpreted by their church. They also believe that God uses sacraments to convey his love to humans. Sacraments are visible signs of something sacred; for instance, the water used in baptism is a sign of God’s power to cleanse people of sin. The Venn diagram below shows other similarities and differences. ROMAN CATHOLIC AND EASTERN ORTHODOX DATA • U.S. state with highest percentage of Roman Catholics: Rhode Island, 51 percent. 2001 American Religious Identification Survey by Graduate Center of City University of New York • U.S. states with highest percentage of Eastern Orthodox: New Hampshire and New Jersey, 0.90 percent each. 1990 National Survey of Religious Identification • Vatican City is an independent state located in Rome, Italy. The Roman Catholic Church claims more than a billion members worldwide. Concise Columbia Encyclopedia, third edition; www.adherents.com • The largest of the Eastern Orthodox churches is the Russian Orthodox Church. It claims 90 million members worldwide. www.adherents.com • In 2003, the world region with the largest population of Roman Catholics: Latin America, 473,000,000 • In 2003, the world region with the largest population of Eastern Orthodox members: Europe, 158,450,000 – - Encyclopaedia Britannica Book of the Year 2004 The 11th Century: Comparing Two Churches Roman Catholic Both Eastern Orthodox Services are conducted in Latin. The pope has authority over all other bishops. The pope claims authority over all kings and emperors. Priests may not marry. Divorce is not permitted. They base their faith on the gospel of Jesus and the Bible. They use sacraments such as baptism. Their religious leaders are priests and bishops. They seek to convert people.
