Dear 4th Grade Parents,
Our class just completed reading, “The Lightning Thief”, by Rick Riordan. To culminate our unit on mythology, we will have a Greek Feast on Friday, May 24th. During the feast, students are allowed to dress as their favorite mythological character (including ones they created through their own writings). However, they certainly do not have to dress up for the event if they prefer not to.
At the feast, students will be allowed to try Mediterranean food and other treats that correspond with our reading, as we watch Disney’s Hercules (rated G). Students will compare and contrast how characters and myths were portrayed in “The Lightning Thief” with how the same characters are represented in “Hercules”.
Students do not need to bring anything for the Greek Feast.
Let me know if you have any questions.
