Activity Overview


Themes come alive when you use a storyboard. In this activity, students will identify themes from mythology, and support their choices with details from the text.


There are many recurring themes in the myths surrounding the Olympians. Some other themes to consider are the importance of beauty, infidelity, anger, involvement with mortals, and marriage. Students may want to select these themes based on previous knowledge, or they can pick from a list!

Abnormal Births

As the gods are divine beings, it only makes sense that some of their births would be extraordinary! Aphrodite was born from the sea, Athena was born fully grown from the head of Zeus, and Dionysus was born from Zeus' thigh. These gods each entered the world in a unique way. Additionally, Zeus' siblings were all swallowed by Kronos after being born, so they underwent a sort of rebirth when Zeus freed them.
