Summer SAVY Session 4, Day 5, Mythology
Day 5: Just like the Olympian gods and goddesses (ancient and modern) we have studied, we have finished well today! We have learned that the ancient Greek and Roman Olympic games were training activities and competitions for improving warriors by developing strength and endurance for completing the race and overcoming the challenges (even the painful ones). What were the qualities of the first athletes? How were and are they similar to the mythological gods? Are the games different or similar today? What are the considerations for the host cities and who is invited to compete?
