I started two years ago and have tried to keep my projects interesting to my students and to show them how mythology is relevant to their world today.
After studying the different gods, goddesses and their symbols, I have them do a presentation on Mythology in Advertisement. They need to go through magazines, phone books, etc. For example, Nike for the goddess Nike. After they find different types of advertisements, then they are to find a company whose logo comes from mythology and research that company.
They need to find out all they can about the company, why the company chose their name, e. Apollo Heating, or how they came to choose their logo, e. After they have found many advertisements and a company, then they do a presentation where they share their findings as well as their knowledge of mythology.
This is very interesting not only for the students but also for me.
No matter how many times I have done this assignment, my students come up with new companies. This also satisfies the famous question, When will we need to use this in real life? We also learn some of the other well-known gods' information. Our bingo cards have names and areas of power mixed around.
The clues have names, areas of power, actions, symbols, etc. Students then cover up their cards with pieces of paper when the clues are given. Students enjoy learning the information, and it is a requested activity long after the study of Greek mythology is over. I do bring small prizes, candy, etc.
