Who Am I? Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses

You are going to design and present a poster starring a Greek God or Goddess of your choosing. This project is due January 20 (B day) or 21 (A day).



Religion was important to the ancient Greeks. They believed that it would make their lives better while they were living. They also believed the gods would take care of them when they died.

The Ancient Greeks believed in many different gods and goddesses. The Greeks believed that these gods and goddesses controlled everything in their lives and the environment. There was a god for every aspect of their lives. It was important to please the gods; happy gods helped you, but unhappy gods punished you. People had special places in their homes where they could pray to the gods. There were also public shrines in all sorts of places where people could pray and leave presents.

What to do:

  1. Sign up on the class sheet for the god or goddess.

  2. Research the god or goddess you have chosen.

  3. Create an 11 x 17 poster of the god or goddess.

  4. Present your god or goddess to the class on the day it is due (1/20= B day; 1/21= A day)

Your poster is to include at least the following information:

  • Name of god or goddess

  • A drawing of your god or goddess. No clip art, please. All drawing and writing needs to be your own work.

On a separate sheet of paper include the following:

(Work must be typed in font 12 with single spacing. Double spacing will result in half credit)

  • Your name and class period

  • God of…. Goddess of…

  • You must include information about at least 4 of the following on a separate sheet of paper:

    • Family: Were they married? Did they have siblings?

    • What did they study? Why are they remembered/important?

    • What did they believe?

    • Symbols that represent them

    • Myths or stories about them

    • Special talents, skills, or traits

    • Weaknesses or problems with this person

  • List of sources- you must write the title, author, and URL of the websites or books you use to collect information neatly on the back of your poster.

  • In a one-page summary describe the life of your Greek god/goddess telling their life prior to them becoming immortals. Story must be creative and written in your own words.

  • Your poster should be neat, legible, and visually appealing.

  • You may use colored pencils, crayons, or markers.

  • Illustrations or lettering can be done on separate paper and attached with glue, or you can work directly on 11 x 17 paper/poster board. Either way, plan your design on scrap paper before beginning work on your poster. This will ensure that you fit all the necessary requirements on your poster in a neat and interesting way. DO NOT use any clip art or computer generated print. We want to see your artistic work.

  • No LATE projects will be accepted!

**Practice presenting with a friend or in front of the mirror (or both). This will give you more confidence when you present your work. Your audience will be better able to enjoy your presentation.
