Creation of Poseidon's world: adventures of the Aegean board game
In Ancient Greece, water was the way people got around. Before anyone would leave on a journey that involved the sea, they would give the Greek god Poseidon his sacrifices for fear that he would be upset and wreck their travels. He was the god of the sea, making him one of the most important gods in the Olympic pantheon. In speech-language pathology, board games are regularly used to incorporate therapy and to keep the client involved. In this project, a journey across Greece and the incorporation of therapeutic techniques are combined to create a board game that would be informative and entertaining to use in a therapy session while educating children about Ancient Greece.
