Perseus vs. Percy Jackson

Hey, Kids!

Welcome back to school!

This week we start reading mythology from around the world.  Our first visit will be to Ancient Greece where we will meet Perseus, a Greek hero and model for Percy Jackson.  Have you seen the new Percy Jackson movie?  How much do you know about the Greek hero Perseus and the gods of Olympus from reading Percy Jackson or seeing the movies?  Take this quiz on the National Geographic Kids website to find out.

Also, take a look at our sidebar and find the category “Myths and Legends”.  Click on it and try the quiz “Which Hero Are You?”

What do you already know about Greece? Leave a comment with three facts you know about this country. Tomorrow we’ll have a list of what we know and what we think we know. Then we can figure out what we want to know about the home of heroes Perseus, Hercules, Theseus, Jason, and Odysseus and work to answer our questions.

The game is afoot!
