    Description

    Teach TWO week's worth of material on the Titan Gods, the Greek Story of Creation, The Dethronement of Kronos, The Rise of the Olympians, and the Earliest Heroes. Start with an introductory lesson on the essential characteristics of myth. Begin with the story of Earth and Sky — the first gods. Then read about all of the Titan gods (there are more than you think (and they were all saturnine). I love the story of Kronos and Rhea — it's a crazy story your students will both love and hate. Then teach the hero story of the Titan Prometheus (and his brother Epimetheus) who first sided with Zeus against the Titans. Also, teach the sequel story of Pandora! Integrate your lesson with bonus vocabulary materials, plus a graphic organizer that allows your students to write about any quote. Note — each lesson pack comes equipped with a Google Apps link to create digital files — great for distance learning.
