Transcript of The Mark of Athena

Chose a character: Leo Scene Theme: "Strands of web covered it like a gauze pavilion. Annabeth suspected that without those webs, the statues would have fallen through the weakened floor long ago. As she stepped into the room, she could see that the cracks below were so wide, she could have lost her foot in them. Beneath the cracks, she saw nothing but empty darkness."
Page # 433 Bravery and Trust An Important Value Trust, friendship, loyalty, and learning to work together as one are all qualities needed to succeed when trying to beat evil together. Presentation by: Dania Hussaini 8B The Mark of Athena, by Rick Riordan The Mark of Athena Book By: Rick Riordan Presentation by: Dania Hussaini Explanation How Fire represents Leo: Bravery and trust is shown many times throughout the book in a lot of different places. One of those places is toward the end of the book when Percy and Anabeth fall into Tartarus together after Percy tells Nico to meet them at the other side of The Doors of Death. This scene shows how much he trusts Nico to be there in time to save them, and how brave he was to let go in the first place. Favorite Passage "You have to work together," Piper cried, hoping she was right. "Both of you think of clean water-a storm of water. Don't hold anything back. Picture all your power, all your strength leaving you."
"That's not hard!" Percy said.
"But force it out!" she said. "Offer up everything, like-like you're already dead, and your only goal is to help the nymphs. It's got to be a gift... a sacrifice."
They got quiet at that word.
"Let's try again," Jason said. "Together." Making Connections One of the most simple connection that I can make with this book is that the characters of the book use the English language to communicate and I also use the English language to communicate most of the time. Also, the characters in the books are teens, and so am I. Vocabulary Definition: A long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior. My sentence: My Sentence:
Three years after Aloe suffered through 3 strokes, saw her parents die, accidentally killed her sister, and was treated like an animal, Aloe developed a case of schizophrenia. The setting contributes to the significance of the scene because this scene takes place in a chamber held together by strands of web. Knowing that the children of Athena are scared of spiders, and that the chamber is filled with spiderwebs and belongs to a huge spider, the reader is kept in suspense to what would happen and to Annabeth and if she succeeds in rescuing the Athena Parthenos, a 40 feet tall statue of Athena that was once a central figure in the Parthenon. #4 #6 Leo is a 15 year old demi-god who is normal in height, and slim. His father is Hephaestus, the God of Fire, and Leo has a very unique ability that no son of Hephaestus has had in 400 years. He can touch fire and create fire without burning himself. Also, Leo is known for being a great mechanic. He was the one to build the warship that they traveled in mostly throughout the book. About Leo: Like some people are scared of fire, they are also scared of Leo. Sometimes when Leo is angry, he accidentally sets him self on fire. He and his skills were very important to the quest. Like fire leads in dark places, he also took the lead in some times when no one else could do anything. #3 #9 Word: Schizophrenia “Being a hero doesn’t mean you’re invincible. It just means that you’re brave enough to stand up and do what’s needed.” –Piper McLean
“The other side, Nico! We’ll see you there. Understand?” “Then Percy let go of the tiny ledge, and together, holding hands, he and Anabeth fell into the endless darkness.” –Percy Jackson (page 567, 568)
“Delaying death is one of my favorite hobbies.” –Leo Valdez (page 460)
“Keep it simple.” –Frank Zhang (page 225)
#5 I really like this passage because it shows how much they are willing to give up for the nymphs, and how much they'd do to save their friends. This passage shows bravery, risk, willingness to let go, and team work. Over all, it is a very good example of facing your fears, working together, trusting each other to give their best, and believing in yourself. #1 (Pages 497 and 498) #9 A key symbol The owl is a key symbol of the book because it is the Mark of Athena. #7 Websites used: http://camphalfblood.wikia.com/wiki/Athena_Parthenos
