Water as a Source of Life - From Greek Mythology to Orthodox Tradition: A Cross - Thematic Scenario

Nikolaos Manesis | Dimitrios Droulias

Abstract: Water is a valuable good, which remains inaccessible to millions of people. Many school activities and projects are carried out so as to raise students' awareness regarding water usage, sustainability, and environmental protection in general. However, water is present in everyday life and religious rituals. What is more, it was worshipped in Ancient Greece. The present five-hour didacticcross-thematic suggestion was addressed to third grade students. Students learnt about the significance of water in ancient Greek culture (deities, myths, narratives, pottery art, statues) and contemporary Christian Rituals and Sacraments (Baptism, Sanctification of water, Epiphany) by using collaborative strategies and ICT. At the end students understood the use of water in Greek Mythology as well as in the Cristian tradition.
