At New Direction’s ( our co-op) I have been teaching the kids Greek mythology each week .
This past week we reviewed some of the Greek gods and the Story of Arachne who boasted to Athene that she was a better weaver then the goddess herself and was turned into a spider and forces to weave for all of eternity.
I incorporate a hands on activity for kids to do while I read to them and talk about the different gods and goddesses. This week they learned to weave and made pot holders with small looms. It was a huge hit.
The kids of course are fascinated by the 3 brothers Zeus, Poseidon and anything to do with Hades and the Underworld.
