How it all started

"The first days of this school year, the teachers and the pupils of the Third Grade started dealing with the Twelve Olympians. We tried to discover the influence of this ancient Greek myth in different fields such as astronomy, geography, art and culture. We found out, between everything else, that the planets of our solar system were named after the ancient Greek gods.
