  1. Athena By: Zayn Siddiqui and Jake Kissler

  2. Athena’s birth • Zeus was walking around Olympus when he saw the beautiful Metis • He chased Metis down and after he caught her he heard the wind say “Metis will have a girl, if she has a boy then the boy will chop Zeus to pieces” • Zeus then ate Metis when he saw her next • That afternoon he had a horrible headache • He called for Hephaestus to split his head open • When Hephaestus broke the mighty skull, Athena hopped out

  3. Athena’s role as a goddess • Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice and skill • She beat Ares in war almost every time even though he had a lot of strength • Athena helped loads of godlings like Perseus, Jason, and Hercules • Athena’s companion was Nike, goddess of victory • Athena controlled the Aegis

  4. The battle of Athena • Arachne was a girl that lived in Lydia who was really good at weaving • She thought she was better than Athena at weaving • Athena heard and decided to battle Arachne for her life • Arachne lost and hung herself • Athena then turned Arachne into a spider • That is why spiders are called arachnids
