Bringing Mythical Characters to Life

Mythical Characters1
Sixth-grade students enrolled within Dawn Skoblicki’s English Language Arts class at Ronkonkoma Middle School recently took part in a creative literary and artistic project which asked them to create their own God or Goddess based on traits highlighted in the novel “The Lightning Thief.”

Students were asked to bring their characters to life through multiple aspects, including writing a detailed description depicting the character’s physical attributes, and were also given the opportunity to either design a drawing of their character or dress up as their God/Goddess in full costume while giving their presentations to the class.
