           Jump into the world of theater this summer
           with director extraordinaire, Miss Horn! In this
           program students will be introduced to creative
           drama and acting through: voice techniques,
           readers’ theatre, improvisation games and at
           the end of the summer we will perform a short
           play to pull together everything we have

Gods and Goddesses: Greek Mythology 101
Grade: 5th and 6th
Subject: Creative Writing, Literature, and Art
Instructor: Ms. Veronica Wenn
Materials Fee: $10
Other: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

In this exciting workshop students will have the opportunity to read
about Percy Jackson’s adventures in the Lightning Thief, as well as
learn about a variety of Greek Gods that show up in this myth-
inspired story. Along with reading this engaging story, students will
act out well-known Greek myths, and use their knowledge of the
gods and mythology to write their own Greek myth. Participants will
also create a mask that will represent a character in their story.
Students will gain reading fluency, creative writing skills, learn how to
collaborate and communicate with others, think creatively, and most
of all have fun.

Please bring a copy of The Lightning Thief to the first day of class.
