Diorama Drama

Daniel created a diorama as a "book report" for a book he read, "Percy Jackson - The Last Olympian." This is the fifth and last book in the Percy Jackson series, which brings Greek mythology into the present day. The title character, Percy, is a demigod, the son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the oceans, and a mortal woman. In the first book, "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief," he learns who he is and meets other demigods and mythical creatures familiar in Greek mythology, such as the medusa. In each book he has to battle the bad creatures to save humanity.

I suggested to Daniel that we create a 3-level diorama depicting the underworld, the mortal world, and Mt. Olympus. Daniel decided what would be in each scene and we used playmobil characters to depict them. It was a lot of fun!
