As a launch to any middle-school or high-school study of mythology, use this 45-minute activity where students work in teams of four to read and think through four short pieces about the creation of Earth/humanity. Use the five slide deck (PDF) to guide students through the jigsaw process as they find commonalities among literature from China, Uganda, the Blackfoot Native American tribe, and the King James Bible's Book of Genesis. The download also includes full-text copies of the public domain stories and helpful student handouts for those who need help with note-taking.
