Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how Greek mythology and the Percy Jackson books have relevance to their own lives.
Jessica Gray is the Artistic and Education Director of The Imaginorium, offering immersive "Story-based Theatre Camps with a Side of STEAMM." Her programs focus on weaving pop culture, the arts, and social emotional learning into a hands-on curriculum. She has offered several in-person Percy Jackson programs and is excited to bring this program into the virtual world!
Ideally, each student should read their own copy of Rick Riordan's “Heroes of Olympus”series. (Don't watch the movies... in this case, the movies are nothing like the books.) Every day, if possible, students should wear an orange or Purple shirt... that's just part of the Camp Half-blood/Camp Jupiter experience. Week One: Camp Half-blood vs New Rome How were the two societies different? Which demigods and gods connect to which camps? Activities: Digital Art, Trivia Games Supplies: No extra necessary (Unless your student would prefer a printout of the art and markers - pdf’s will be provided) Week Two: Godly Parents vs. Roman Ancestors What's the difference between the Greek and Roman gods and goddesses? Activities: Costume & Prop Scavenger Hunt, Music Supplies: Students will need to be able to have access to their own closet to pull out clothes and to gather other items from different places in their house. Week Three: Celestial Bronze vs. Imperial Gold What are the mythical weapons and magical objects associated with each of the camps and characters? What are the talents and strengths of the demigods? Activities: Sculpting Supplies: Hot glue (if a student is allowed), duct tape, and a ball point pen. OR Air-dry clay and small metallic items in gold and bronze finish (glitter, powder, paint, or paper will work, but you could also use small bits of hardware with a gold or bronze finish) Week Four: Oracles Vs. Augury Activities: Writing, Fiber Arts Supplies: Yarn or string, any color, at least 40 inches or so. A piece of scrap fabric (can be a scrap from an old piece of clothing) and poly fill (or cotton balls to fill). Week Five: Old Myths vs. New Myths Activities: Storytelling and/or improvisation Claiming/blessing ceremony Supplies: No additional supplies needed
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Nearpod
6 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Greek and Roman mythology include violence and sexuality inherent in the stories, though I will be careful to keep these stories as age-appropriate as possible while staying true to the myths themselves. I do not like to change the myths themselves (Zeus was unfaithful to his wife, for example. A lot. There's no getting around that.). But we don't need to go into details that are inappropriate for young kids.
