Modeling the colorful oral story-telling techniques of Mr. Odds Bodkin, Fifth Graders took their audience deep into Homer’s Odyssey.  In highly dramatic fashion, they recounted the story of Odysseus on his journey home to Ithaca after the fall of Troy.  With heads adorned in wreathes and bodies clad in chitons and tunics, the boys and girls of DCD’s Fifth Grade delivered charismatic monologues detailing Odysseus’ encounters with the Cyclops Polyphemus, Sirens, and various other Greek gods trying to thwart his ten-year attempt to journey home to his wife Penelope and son Telemachus. The telling of the Odyssey was the culmination of their story-telling unit and study of ancient Greece.  The performance was celebrated with a wonderful Greek feast beautifully prepared by the Fifth Grade families. It was a memorable morning!
