How to Use this Character Archetypes Lesson
These materials support a mythology unit, The Lightning Thief or The Odyssey. This activity is also a reinforcement for the Common Core standard RL.8.9: Analyze how a modern work of fiction draws on themes, patterns of events, or character types from myths, traditional stories, or religious works such as the Bible, including describing how the material is rendered new.
Use the pennant banner to create a student-made bulletin board or hallway display. This makes an attractive visual display for Open House or Back-to-School night!
Get the most from this activity by using it with my Character Archetypes Posters and Interactive Notebook lesson.
