This WebQuest is designed to help students understand the twelve Olympian Gods. It also requires students to work together and put themselves in the shoes of a Demi-God.
IntroductionWhat do Hercules, Perseus, and Percy Jackson have in common?
Many people will know right away that all three of these fictional characters are Demi-gods. (Half god half man).
Imagine if you were a Demi-god. Wouldn't you want to know everything there is to know about your immortal parent? What about your mother or father's siblings?
Today we are all going to be Demi-Gods. It is your job to learn all you can about your immortal parents and how they (The Olympians) are related to each other.
Putting yourself into the world of Greek Gods and Goddesses will help you understand what it was like to be a part of ancient Greece. Many of the phenomenon we explain with science today was once explained by the deeds and adventures of the gods.
