Project Idea: Heracles

The hero Heracles (Hercules to the Romans) had an adventurous life starting from the very moment of his birth. You could write a project on his famous Labors, or you could write about all the other drama in his life.

Research Tip: Wikipedia is a fantastic resources for the life of Heracles, and also for his Labors, including individual articles on each of the Labors: the Nemean Lion, the Hydra of Lerna, the Girdle of Hippolyta, etc.
