Product Description
In this product: (NEWLY ADDED PAGES TO THIS RESOURCE!)

This SUMMARY WRITING project asks students to read and compare myths/legends from two very different cultures, finding both the similarities and differences (COMPARING and CONTRASTING. Students will read two myths, one Greek Myth, and the other a Blackfoot Myth, both 'explaining' how the “BIG DIPPER” came to be.
Greek Mythology and Native American legends may seem like two very different genres, but many similarities can be found.
