Allusions to the Bible & Greek Mythology: A Scavenger Hunt

Today you’re going to be assigned to a team.  Your team’s task is to research and find as many Pop Culture allusions to the Bible (Old Testament & New Testament) and to Greek Mythology that you can find.

The rules:

  • In order for your allusion to count, the allusion must be one that you understand.  If you don’t know the work (and be able to summarize the work for the class) in which the allusion occurs,  then you can’t use it.
  • You must write the allusion down and provide a very brief (1 or 2 sentence) explanation of the allusion.
  • At the end of the period, each team will submit their work and the final tally will be calculated.  The winning team will be announced at the start of tomorrow’s class.
  • The winning team will get to complete ONE of our future activities OUTSIDE while the rest of us are stuck in the hot, odor-filled classroom.  Exact date TBD based on weather & the assignment calendar.
