Who Am I? Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses
You are going to design and present a poster starring a Greek God or Goddess of your choosing.
This project is due January 20 (B day) or 21 (A day).
Religion was important to the ancient Greeks. They believed that it would make their lives better while they
were living. They also believed the gods would take care of them when they died.
The Ancient Greeks believed in many different gods and goddesses. The Greeks believed that these gods
and goddesses controlled everything in their lives and the environment. There was a god for every aspect of
their lives. It was important to please the gods; happy gods helped you, but unhappy gods punished you. People
had special places in their homes where they could pray to the gods. There were also public shrines in all sorts
of places where people could pray and leave presents.

Your poster should be neat, legible, and visually appealing.
You may use colored pencils, crayons, or markers.

interesting way. DO NOT use any clip art or computer generated print. We want to see your artistic
work.
No LATE projects will be accepted!

you present your work. Your audience will be better able to enjoy your presentation.
