You may have not heard , but we will have greek day on november 21 . All the 5 - 8 graders will dress up as the Greek god or goddess they chose . There is Aphrodite , Apollo , Ares , Artemis , Athena , Demeter , Dionysus , Eros , Haydes , Hephaestus , Hera , Hermes , Hestia , Pan , Poseidon , and Zeus . We are doing this to get a deeper understanding of Greek mythology . Whatever god or goddess we chose , we have to research about him or her
The goddess I am doing is Hera , the goddess of marriage . Her brothers and sisters were Hestia , demeter , Haydes , Poseidon and Zeus . Almost all of them were eaten by Cronus except Zeus . After Cronus was defeated , Zeus made Hera his wife . Their sons were Hephaestus and Ares . Hephaestus was the god of fire and Ares was the god of war . No one really turned to Ares for battle plans and no one really liked him except aphrodite . Zeus had other marriages , but Hera didn't like his other marriages.
On Greek day , we will present our god or goddess . We will also have to dress up as our god or goddess . Any food that is associated with our god or goddess can bring it in . We will have a Greek feast . I am really excited for next week . I can't wait .
