Odyssey Project

The culmination of the Odyssey unit is a creative, artistic, problem-solving project: the creation of a board game based on the Odyssey.

  • The game must:
    • Include instructions
    • Be instructive of
      • the narrative structure of an epic
      • the general events of the Odyssey
    • Must incorporate Homeric similes somehow in the game play (which means you’ll have to teach players about Homeric similes as well)
    • Be artistically and visually pleasing
  • The game should:
    • take more than five minutes to play
    • be somewhat fun
