To present the information regarding the god or goddess, students may do one of the following projects:

a. Create a drawing of a god or goddess as he or she behaves in a popular myth. This includes writing a summary to include all of the research done on the subject.
b. Create a script and act out the myth researched dealing with the god or goddess. The scene should also compare the myth taken from the other culture to the Greek god or goddess researched.

All students will be asked to participate in the presentation while classmates take notes on the subjects. The information presented will be on the mythology test.
