Granby 6th graders enjoy videoconference

Videoconference technology recently allowed Granby Elementary School sixth-graders to explore the Greek mythology collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Facilitated by Melissa Daniels, Distance Learning Coordinator at the Center for Instruction, Technology & Innovation, the video chat enabled students to compare Greek and Roman mythology, Disney mythology characters to historical references and reasons why mythological events occurred. Several students also shared their favorite facts and asked the following questions: What drove Hercules mad? Did Hercules defeat Medusa before or after the Hydra? Who decided Hercules needed to be punished?

Sixth-Grade Teacher Michelle Pinkevicz said the video connection coincided with the students’ current English Language Arts unit, which explores Greek mythology references and characters in the book “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.” The book served as an introduction to the 12 head gods/goddesses.
