CENTAURS/SATYRS GREEK MYTHOLOGY

MATH
Go the distance, have students race their centaur and satyr in a Olympic Greek marathon, and have the students calculate the amount of steps each mythological character would need to take in order to complete the race. Would having two legs versus 4 legs make a difference? Calculate the individual steps per hoof.

HISTORY
In Greek mythology both centaurs and satyrs are written into many different story lines. Have the students reenact a piece of mythology using puppets and showcase a skit.

LANGUAGE ARTS
Explore how centaurs and satyrs were used in books and movies, for example “The Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan then have them write their own original story or play to go along with the character that they develop.

SCIENCE
Psychology may be defined as the scientific study of the human mind and behavior versus philosophy which studies the fundamental nature of knowledge. How do these different studies in science parallel the ideology of the belief in centaurs and satyrs in Greek mythology.

EXTENSION
Have students design a comic strip that explores the adventures of the centaur and satyr. Print out black and white copies of the comics and pass out to the class to color using their favorite medium, like colored pencils or crayons.
