During his quest in The Lightning Thief, Percy Jackson goes to several different places across the United States that are reflections of mythological locations. By creating a travel poster, students will explore one of these locations. The posters the students create should be easily supported with evidence from the text, drawing from the descriptions Riordan includes and their knowledge of Greek mythology. These posters may be created from the perspective of the creatures that dominate the place or from Percy's experiences there.
Students can choose a location or you can assign them locations. To extend the assignment, students can do research into the actual geographical location to add depth to the reasons people may (or may not) want to visit it.
