Humanities Kids,

STOP MISSING CLASS! I love your guts, but I do not have time to make-up an entire class sessions with you. Many of you keep telling me that you are tired. Really? GROW UP! You guys have NO IDEA what tired is...wait until you choose to serve a mission, or you start having children. STOP FINDING, USING, and MAKING excuses to not do what you need to do. I love you, but I am going to "call you out!"

If you missed class, we continued with the Greek Pantheon, and in addition we watched a History Chanel movie detailing the Greek gods. You can easily watch this on-line under The film is entitled "The Greek Gods."

1. Test covering the Greek gods will occur on Tuesday, the 25th! START REVIEWING NOW!

  For those of you that missed the Greek names, Roman names, Symbols and Domains I have included this information for you below.

Athena, Minerva, owl/breast plate/olive tree/spear/helmet, Wisdom and Strategy
Hephaestus, Vulcan, fire/hammer/anvil/tongs/ god of invention and creativity
Aphrodite, Venus, Doves/Roses/ sign of three/goddess of love and sex
Ares, Mars,skull/ helmet/dogs/sword/spear/shield,god of war and carnage

Hermes/Mercury/winged hat, winged shoes and caduceus/ messenger, commerce and takes the dead to the underworld.

1. Test covering Greek Gods on TUESDAY! You will see pictures of the Greek gods, and I will ask that you identify the god via their symbols.  You will need to identify the Greek, Roman, one symbol not shown, and two domains if the god has more than one!

3. Create Flashcards for the gods. You can use a 1/4 of the number that you create on the quiz.
 PRACTICE QUIZ for Friday's Quiz
Please identify the god by their Greek and Roman names, symbols not shown and domains (include all of them if they have more than one.) Some of the images depict all the symbols so identify the gods' Greek and Roman names along with their domains. I apologize that some of the images are slightly blurry. No clue????????
