I don't know anything about Greek mythology. I would like to know lots about all of the special gods. I would also like to learn about the hero's and heroines. I think learning about the myths and fables that they told would be exciting to know. I think learning about the Greek mythology in class would be great. I hope to learn lots of interesting things in class.

What I want to know about greek mythology is how they came up with these myths about the world. I also want to know why the english language and culture is influenced so greatly by Greek culture. Why didn't the early peoople choose a different path to follow? I know a good amount of greek mythology from reading the Percy Jackson series, also in History we are studing the Greeks. I know a couple of myths. One of them is the Achilles tendon. Achilles mother dipped him in the river Styx,and held him by his ankle. She did this to make his skin invinceable, his only weak spot was his heel which wasn't dipped. Unfortunatley he took an arrow through his heel and died.

I want to know how they come up with myths, and who created them, etc. What I do know is some of the gods, such as Zeus, Hera, and Hermes. I know that a myth is a body of a story that tries to explain how the world works. I look forward to learning a lot about Greek mythology over the next several weeks in class.

I would like to learn some of the stories that the Greek Gods were involved in and all of the Greek Gods. I would also like to know another reason why the Greek Gods were so important. Another thing I would like to learn is where do the Gods sleep and what do they eat? I am so excited to learn about Greek Mythology!

I know that the Greeks created myths to explain why certain things happen and how the world works.I also know a lot of different Greek myths about famous heroes and the major gods and goddesses. The Percy Jackson series was fun to read because it had to do with the gods and lots of other things in Greek mythology too.From history class I now know a couple more things about greek mythology and a lot more about Greece itself. What I'd like to learn know is who created these myths. I also would like to know how they came up with these myths. This year I want to know more about the minor gods and goddesses, as well. I have enjoyed learning about Greek mythology because a lot of the myths are really funny or weird. I hope that I can learn a lot more!
