Activity Overview


Many of the characters in The Lightning Thief are immortal and have been alive (or reincarnated) for thousands of years. Read about some of the characters in traditional mythology, then create a T-Chart that compares the traditional representation of the characters.

  • Dionysus
  • Zeus
  • Poseidon
  • Hades
  • Furies
  • Charon
  • Echidna
  • Chimera
  • Medusa
