The results were amazing and will shared on the LV page of this site. I am SO proud of their work!! In addition to the writing piece, each student chose a personal passion project to demonstrate their understanding and appreciation of The Odyssey. Projects included: A Prezi time line of Odysseus' life, a slide show of a tool kit used by Odysseus with an actual tool kit complete with armor, map, and boat, a quilt of Odysseus' journey to Hades, a 15 minute Greek Gossip TV show with commercials in which the hosts chat about the ethics and morals of the characters along with the shenanigans of the gods, a map of Ancient Greece with a tour by a Sphero, a poster which depicts each chapter in the Odyssey with an illustration and a brief chapter summary, Odysseus' Year Book, and a papier mache Scylla!
