PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A fun project to help your students gain familiarity with the number of interesting creatures and monsters that populate the world of Greek Mythology.

In this project, students choose 8 different "monsters" from Greek Mythology (i.e. Pegasus, Medusa, sirens, mermaids, hydras, etc.). They create a "dictionary" of their chosen creatures, listing their descriptions and a few interesting facts about each creature. They must also create 2 monsters of their own.

The download includes:
- In-depth Teacher's Guide
- Creatures and Monsters of Greek Mythology worksheet (list of creatures, their descriptions, and a bit about them)
- blank Monster Manual pages for students who require a bit more structure or support
- blank Monster Manual covers
- grading rubric

A really great way to learn more about the fascinating world of Greek Mythology as students create a fun project.

I think this will be an exciting activity for my students to complete. I also had some trouble with the formatting on the monster manual templates on page 5. The lines don't match up and the lines are missing on the top template.

I cannot print individual pages. Its all one sheet on my computer. I'm unable to use this product which I bought for a lesson.
On  March 8, 2012Meghan Mathis answered:
I am sorry to hear that you had trouble downloading the product. I have placed it in a PDF file to see if that works out any spacing issues you might be encountering. Please re-download the product once you get the message that it has been updated and see if that solves the issue. Thanks again, I know you and your students will enjoy this project! Meghan

Product Questions & Answers

On  January 10, 2011J Bowman (TpT Seller) asked:
Sorry! I missed the part where it asks students to create two of their own mythical creatures. Everything is good. Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 10, 2011J Bowman (TpT Seller) asked:
I found there is a typo error on this worksheet. The directions on the Teacher Guide states that students should use 8 monsters, but their rubric requests they should have 10 monsters define. You may want to change the number!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 10, 2011Meghan Mathis answered:
I will check into this. My original project called for 8 actual "monsters" from Greek Mythology and 2 that the students make up on their own which is where the 10 comes from. I will double-check to clear up any confusion.

Thanks a bunch!
