I rewrote this little Norse mythology because a student wanted to know about Thor's mysterious wife. I found some wonderful stories online, but most of them were written for adults. I took a summary I found online and wove my own story from it. I'm aware that there may be different versions, but I chose to tweak this one since it was short and simple.
The summary can be found on this website: http://www.thaliatook.com/AMGG/sif.php
I simplified the story as much as possible, so that advanced first graders are able to read it. My first grader was able to breeze through this story easily. I edited it since giving her my rough draft to expand on some ideas, but it should still be readable.
A short answer question page is included, as well as a character profile sheet and a page where students can draw a comic strip about the story. I have also added a vocabulary comprehension page with two short answer questions and two multiple choice.
Warning: The story contains some violence.
