The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Lesson Plans by Becky Harvey and Anna Warfield

Percy spent his childhood being kicked from one school to the next, but now it is clear to the adults in his life that he needs to know the truth: he is the son of a god. Percy goes to a camp for demigods so he can learn about his divine heritage and how to defend himself against the dangers of the mythological world. Along with his friends, Annabeth and Grover, Percy has to save the world of humans. The ancient gods of Olympus are poised to wage war, and Percy might be the only person who can stop them. As the first book of the Percy Jackson series, The Lightning Thief is sure to encourage students to read on and on.

  • Principal
  • "I told Grover I didn't think Mrs. Dodds was human. He looked at me real serious and said, 'You're absolutely right.'"
  • "Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood." "Being a half-blood is dangerous. It's scary. Most of the time it gets you killed in painful, nasty ways."
  • Foreshadowing
  • "That was my first day at Camp Half-Blood. I wish I knew how briefly I would get to enjoy my new home."
