The Creation of Humans: Prometheus

After you read the myth, reflect and respond on 
to the following questions. This will be due Wednesday, February 8th...

1. How do Prometheus and Zeus differ in personality?

2. Why is Prometheus a "true father" to humans unlike Zeus?

3. Why was Zeus' punishment so harsh?

4. What does this harsh punishment say about the Ancient Greeks and their values? Hint: think about who ruled the society...

5. Create a "poem" in Tribute to Prometheus. Use part of your response to assist you... as you will use the response and paste it into

 Here's Micaela's wordle as Tribute to Prometheus... Well done!

Read the poem, "Prometheus" by Lord Byron. Complete the questions on the sheet.

Dividing Fractions Rule

Remember this "gangsta" rule.... Yes I know I should not encourage "gangstaisms"... but it will help you remember how to divide fractions....

Actions.... shake your head as you say "You can't divide fractions",
Flip - "Twirl" your hands... mambo style,
Multiply - "cross forearms... in an "X"
the second... gesture with 2 fingers...

Get your son or daughter in grade 8 to demonstrate the actions for you....
