Unit Study for The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

I've collected a number of useful links for THE LIGHTNING THIEF by Rick Riordan. We've finished reading it (and enjoyed it very much), so I thought I'd share the links with you. We didn't do everything on this list, but we did complete a fair number of these activities.
