Activity Overview


A fun way for students to express their understanding of a story, its themes, and main characters, is to create a movie poster. As students read The Odyssey, they may have a favorite stop on his journey or perhaps they enjoyed the entire story. Have students create a movie poster, complete with a title, casting, and an image that conveys important information from the story.

To make this a class assignment, consider giving each student one of the stops on the journey to create a poster for. When students complete their posters, they can be printed out and hung in the classroom in the order of each stop! Students may also like to create travel posters instead of a movie poster - this can be used as an alternative to the main assignment.
