Greek Mythology is the religion of the Ancient Greeks and they believed in many Gods. The gods often took on human traits, but could perform superhuman feats.
My three kids all have very different knowledge bases for the Greek Gods, yet they all fully participated and learned from this activity. My 11 year old must have been Greek in a former life. She can tell me the names of Cronus's children, who was the father of Pan, and how Pandora was created in a single breath. My 9 year old son is slowly learning about the Gods, and my 5 year old has only heard a few names in passing.
D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths to help with the family tree mobile as it contains a Greek God family tree.
D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths book is a great overview book. It explains who all the Gods are, how they are related and major events in their lives. The pictures are wonderful. I would recommend this book for third grade and up as a few of the stories are a bit scary.
Tales of Ancient Greece (Enid Byton, Myths and Legends) by Enid Blyton is suitable for much younger children. I just finished reading it with my six year old. The stories are entertaining and easy to follow.
