For a FREE* author visit, scroll down to fill out the form and book your date. You will also find information on how to prepare for your author visit at the bottom of this page.
Below are materials and activities teachers and librarians of middle school and high school students may use and adapt as needed.
The first is a downloadable document outlining six weeks of activities related to Greek mythology and The Gatekeeper’s Sons, culminating in a “Toga Party with the Author” either in person or by Skype.
Below that are nine Greek mythology bingo cards and sheets of forty-seven Greek mythology flashcards that can be printed out, cut, and used in the classroom or library. Although there are only nine different bingo cards, the students can either work in groups, or you can print out multiples and have more than one winner with each game.
If possible, use 11″ by 8 1/2 ” (letter) size paper or card stock to print out the flashcards and bingo boards. You can laminate them if you use regular paper.
