I&S – “Oh my godness!”

At the center of Greek mythology is the pantheon of gods and goddesses who were said to live on Mount Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece. From their lofty perch, they ruled every aspect of human life. Olympian deities looked like men and women (though they could change themselves into animals and other things) and were — as many myths recounted — vulnerable to human foibles and passions” -HISTORY©


In our Individuals and Societies class, we’ve been studying the ancient Greek gods and goddesses, learning about their unique characteristics, symbols, and creation myths. To put our knowledge to the test, we’ve challenged our students to create their very own version of a god or goddess, complete with a name, symbol, and creation myth.

This activity not only allows students to exercise their imagination but also encourages them to think critically and apply the knowledge they’ve learned in a fun and engaging way.

Let’s dive into the world of mythology and see what kind of divine beings our students have conjured up!


With the aid of A.I enhancement, I selected some of the students’ creations and took them to the next level.  The aim of this was to give students a glimpse of their potential if they fully developed their drawing skills.
