students give mythology presentations

Greek Gods Come to Life

Athena, Zeus, Poseidon and Aphrodite were just a few of the Greek gods, goddesses and heroes who came to life at Elementary North on Wednesday. Regally dressed and with strong voices, students discussed the personality traits, likes and dislikes, and habits of the gods they chose to represent. The students, in the fourth grade classes of Mrs. McConnell, Mrs. Clausen, Ms. Torres and Mrs. Bruno, have been preparing for these presentations since early January. They took a field trip to Aspen Drive Library to research mythology. They picked the gods they wanted to portray, and wrote scripts. They made costumes and practiced building their presentation skills. They did an excellent job.
