Lesson plans and project ideas

Most teachers have strict content requirements for their classroom instruction.  Generally, however, for students who love mythology, it is sufficient to put several copies of the Study Guide in a folder alongside several mythology books.  

The projects below can be incorporated into the classroom, especially during "down times," e.g. days when classroom periods are shortened to accommodate weather delays or school celebrations, by changing the topics to fit the Titans study guide.  Given the interest in comic-book heroes, one of the easiest ways would be to ask students to connect a Titan (or several Titans on a project like the Bloom Ball) with a comic-book character.

The "Tissue Box" project is especially popular with school secretaries, and it promotes your class without much work.
