    Hi,
    I am currently teaching a Year 6 class the topic of Ancient Greece. The children are difficult to motivate so want to make a lesson about the Greek Gods that is exciting and fun.
    Anyone got any ideas?
    Thanks in advance,
    Louise

    Do you know this site?
    http://myths.e2bn.org/index.php
    You could register and the children could create their own story board. (You can view the rest of the site without registering.)
     
  4. How about a project? Split the children into groups, and give each group a God to research using the internet, library books etc. They can then present their findings to the class, maybe a labelled drawing their God, myth they are linked too (possibly acting out, creating masks etc?) You can tell them what information you want them to find out, and they'll be thinking about being independent in finding out things, and becoming more confident in presenting to others, ready for secondary school! Then create a short 'quiz'/test to see how much they were listening to other groups!
