PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Greek Mythology and Native American legends may seem like the two very different genres, with little to no similarities, but you'd be wrong!

This project asks students to compare myths and legends from two very different cultures, finding both the similarities and differences. Through this common core linked project, students will read two myths, one about the Greek Myth, Medusa, and the other an Iroquois or Haudenosaunee legend called, "The No-Faced Doll."

This pack includes:
*A brief overview of the standards addressed.
*A student page explaining the reading and writing task.
*An introduction to myths and legends, including key terminology students must know before completing this assignment (including hamartia- tragic flaws in characters).
*Two myths
*Four Text-dependent questions for each of the myths (8 questions total).
*Three graphic organizers- (theme, hamartia, compare/contrast, and a four square organizer to plan the writing process).
*Writing paper for students to write their final essay.

Through this activity, students are addressing many common core standards of Reading Literature, including to make connections across cultural texts.

I hope your kids have as much fun as my kids did with this assignment!!

Thanks for looking!
