Activity Overview


What would the Norse gods and goddesses have tweeted about? Who would show up on Odin's Instagram? In this activity, students can create social media profiles or pages for the characters of Norse mythology!

The profiles and what is included on them should be drawn from what students have learned from mythology or from inferences students are able to make. They should include conversations and interactions through the form of private messaging, timeline posts, and more. To expand this activity into a group project, assign each student a character, and have them work with a small group to create interactions between characters.

An alternative to this assignment is to create and print out social media page worksheets for students to complete offline, or give them the choice if they'd like to create digitally or with pen and paper.
