Sixth-grade students at Seneca Middle School recently participated in a mythology-themed activity creating button pins, inspired by the Rick Riordan book, “The Lightning Thief.”

With help from the Sachem Public Library, students were taught how to assemble their own button pins before they pressed the buttons together using one of the library’s button presses. Students made buttons from one of six premade designs before creating their own mythology-themed illustrations to be turned into buttons. 

The activity was an opportunity for the students to review key areas of the popular book as part of their unit on gods and goddesses.
