Short and sweet

As a continuance of our Greek Myth study, we have found these wonderful cards to prepare and use in a memorisation game!

Try and match the hidden pairs and at the same time, each card is funky and full of silly, if true, information about the God/Goddess/Demon/Demigod etc. etc.

For a lad with executive function below average, he sure is good at matching pairs games!

    Wait! Where did you get the cards? Who is the publisher? My kids think it looks like fun.

  2. Hi Vanessa,
    Still not 100% sure but may well have been “The Mighty 12: Superheroes of Greek Myth” and I am still checking. If yes, we borrowed from the library but I see Amazon has it fairly cheaply. Another fun one is “Amazing Greek Myths of Wonder and Blunders”, which is extremely funny. We used (in part) the Unit Study from Mensa for Kids – we are about to go back into it as we are watching both Merlin and Percy Jackson and the Olympians. They recommend the following books:
    D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths by Ingri and Edgar Parin D’Aulaire
    • The Gods and Goddesses of Olympus by Aliki
    • The Mighty 12: Superheroes of Greek Myths by Charles Smith
    • Greek Myths and Legends by Cheryl Evans
    • Mythology by Edith Hamilton

    Hope that is some help? Mythology can be so much fun.

  3. The other place the original cards may have come from is Horrible Histories “Groovy Greeks” – we use as many Horrible Histories books as we can find at any one time because they are perfect for Mr. D. who appreciates a bit of silly and a bit of gore.
