Transcript of Greek Mythology Connections

One Text to text connection I have in the book Sea of Monsters is when at Camp-HalfBlood, Tyson, a Cyclope is laughed at, teased and exluded by the other campers and a especially mean counselor because he is not like the other campers. This reminded of when in Silverwing, Shade ( A Silverwing newborn) is laughed at,teased, and exluded too by the other newborn bats because of his size. This helped me understand why Tyson looks up to Percy ( His half-brother) for support. Greek Mythology Text To Text
Connections What Is Greek Mythology? Greek mythology is made up of myths and legends that the ancient Greeks tell, involving their gods and heroes, the world, and the origins of their own cerimonial services. The Olmypians (Important Gods and Goddesses) Zeus ( Father of the gods and men)- King of the sky and lightning.
Posiedon ( Earthshaker, Father of horses)- God of the seas and storms Hestia- Goddess of the Hearth Hera- Goddess of women and marriage Ares-God of war Athena-Goddess of war and wisdom Apollo-God of the sun, music, poetry, plague, oracles, medicine, light and knowledge Aphrodite- Goddess of love and beauty Hermes-Messenger of the gods
God of commerce, thieves, travelers, and sports Artemis-Goddess of Hunting, Forests and the Moon Hephaestus-God of Blacksmiths, Craftsmen and Volcanoes Table of Contents 1. What is Greek Mythology?

Connections Cool Facts about Greek Mythology Quiz Time! The small print: Answers The END! When I read Greek and Roman mythology (Graphic Novel)
Hermes said he invented
the internet , the lyre, alphabet, astronomy,
and the scales. He also made a number of card games
and he was an expert cheat!
This reminded me of how much
we use the things in our daily lives. If the gods did
really create these things, we would owe a lot
to them. Now I know why the ancient Greeks
belived in God so much. One Text to Text connection I had when
reading Greek Mythology by Don Nardo
was when Hercules was sent to
do the 12 labours in order to make
do for his mistakes. Hercules needs
to complete these tasks because
when Hera drove him mad and made
him kill his wife and daughter, Hercules
wanted to amend his wrongdoings. This reminded of when Shade also went on a quest to find his father and the secret
of the mysterious bands Another connection was when I read Greek and Roman
Mythology A-Z is when how King Midas, helped a saytr and
was granted one wish. He was greedy and
wished that every thing he touched turned
to gold. His wish started to go wrong and
his daughter was turned to gold!
This reminded of when I wished for a lot stuff
for Christmas, and in the morning, when I came down
there was a lot of presents!
Then things started to go sour when I found
that half of it was my brothers, and my parents could'nt get
my gift on time. Thanks for watching! One other Text-Self connection I had when
reading Sea of Monsters was when
the brothers Zeus and Poseidon
argue and fight over little things,
like why sky disasters are more spectacular
than sea disasters. This reminds me of when
my brother and me fight over little things
like who gets to use the washroom first and
the TV channels. Now I can almost visualize
the squabbles between Zeus and Poseidon. Artemis was immune to Aphrodite’s love powers.

Cronus ( A powerful Titian) ate 5 of his children and 1 rock. The rock was supossed to be another baby, but the baby grew up and ( With the help of his barfed up siblings) killed his evil dad.

Monsters reform when sliced with celestial bronze.
Heraclues labours include......

Whew! All Done! 1. Ares was the God of what?

3.Kill the 9 Headed Hydra When Hera threw baby Hephaestus down
Mount Olmypus because the baby was ugly.
Hephaestus was raised by nymphs and got back
at Hera by building a throne that trapped her!
This reminded me of the Halocaust,
when 6million Jews were sent to death camps
because they
were being who they were and because
they were different. 1. War 2.Gold Bibliography History of the world Greek Mythology
