PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This SUMMARY WRITING project asks students to read and compare myths from two very different cultures, finding both the similarities and differences (COMPARING & CONTRASTING). Students will read two myths, one JAPANESE Myth, and the other
a Native North American (MI’KMAQ) Myth, one explaining the “Man in the Moon”, and the other a “Moon Rabbit”.

Although Japanese Mythology and Native North American legends may seem like two very different genres, many similarities can be found.
