Use this resource at the beginning of your Beowulf unit to help students understand important historical context and literary terms.
These stations are an engaging way to introduce this epic poem!
The 6 stations include information about the following topics:
The Runic Alphabet
Translations of the Epic
Sutton Hoo Artifacts
The Hero's Journey
The following items are also included:
Table tents - to direct your students from one station to another
Student Passport - for students to write their answers
Answer Key - for all materials
Information Sheet with directions for each station - These remain at each station as students rotate around the room.
Some of the stations contain items in multiples (Hero's Journey image, Runic Alphabet, Sutton Hoo artifacts). This way multiple students can look at them at the same time while at the station.
**Print the station materials on cardstock or laminate them to able to use them with numerous classes throughout the day and year after year!**
