It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman! Nope! It’s Hermes!!
Join us as we enter through the gate of clouds to explore the home of the Greek and Roman gods: the great Mount Olympus! We will hear stories from Seshat, goddess of writing and keeper of books, about King Midas, the Apple of Discord, Narcissus, and many more! We will even learn about the original Nike and Pandora, the Greek women who are the namesakes of two modern-day, multi-billion dollar companies! The gods and goddesses of Olympus do not lead perfect lives—they must face war, jealousy, and love. Their children are born with special abilities as well. Hercules, Cupid, and Persephone are just a few of the children born with special characteristics. Come learn about who Demeter was and how she oversaw the harvest, while Hephaestus furnished his fellow gods with weapons of war.
What is unique about Greek and Roman mythology, and why are the names still used today? Is it really the monsters you need to look out for, or is it the strong and beautiful gods and goddesses who might curse you? This class is your chance to find out!
Mythology is an imperative part of every child’s knowledge foundation. Subsequently, this is the first of two sessions this year focused on Greek/Roman mythology.
