I loved this lesson plan and the material it covered. It combined in work in-class work, group work, and comparisons of other religions. The only thing I noticed was a complete lack of technology. I think that in the homework section of it, it would be very easy to add some. Instead of the students just matching up the gods/goddesses/titans to their correct description provided in the box to the right, they should make a short digital presentation of it using either PowerPoint or Prezi. This should include pictures that they can then print out and use on their vocabulary cards. Otherwise, this all sounds like so much fun.
