Lesson Idea: Zeus is retiring. Apply for his job. Have students work in small groups. Have your kids write a resume for someone seeking this job. Followed by, if time permits and depending upon your grade level, you might want to actually hold a job interview.

A tried and true lesson plan with a twist - The Hercules Detective Agency. Have your kids read some Case Files from the Hercules Detective Agency, then, working in small groups or individually, have them write a case file of their own. Tell your kids: Thousands of years ago, the ancient Greeks told wonderful stories about their many gods, goddesses and magical beings. These stories are called myths. Each Greek god had one or more magical powers. The ancient Greeks believed their gods used their magical powers for good, for trickery, and for adventure. Although the ancient Greek storytellers were quite inventive, and each told a myth in their own way, each god's personality and powers remained the same from story to story. That's because the ancient Greek people knew their gods well. So, no matter who was telling the story, Zeus was always king; Hera was always jealous; and so it went. We would appreciate a link back to this site so we keep ownership of the Hercules Detective Agency clearly marked. Link: The Hercules Detective Agency. Teacher Note: If you decide to post your students case files online, on your own site, please let us know so we can link to your creative students.
