We also read the myth of Medusa. I printed out the story of how beautiful Medusa was turned into the terrible monster by Athena from DLTK Kids.
We really, really like the First Greek Myths series by Saviour Pirotta. We continually check them out of the library!! They are all good. We’ve read Perseus and the Monstrous Medusa, Odysseus and the Wooden Horse, The Secret of Pandora’s Box. (affiliate links) There is also King Midas’s Goldfingers (affiliate link). Our library did not have that one, but it’s available at Amazon.
Perseus and the Monstrous Medusa (affiliate link), we were inspired to make our own Medusa Craft (which you can see at this post).
There are some great craft, coloring page and activity ideas for ancient Greece at: http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/ancient_greece_for_kids.htm
