I am a trained educator for K-8th grade students, holding a bachelors of education for elementary. I have been in many classrooms teaching many different subjects to these age groups, so I am well practiced in presenting information in an appropriate way so that it isn't too intense for young learners.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
We will discuss the idea of Greek gods and goddesses in a mythical, fictional sense. There will be mention of babies, marriage, and infidelity (explained to students as unfaithfulness to a married partner by having other girlfriends or boyfriends). We will talk about war, killing, and battles, but we will not go into bloody details.
The Greek Myths Complete Edition by Robert Graves is a main source of information along with several websites including greekmythology.com and my own background knowledge.
