Teach more than a month's worth of material on the Greek Gods, Heroes, and Lovers. Start with an introductory lesson on the essential characteristics of myth. Then, deep dive into creation myths—further the story with Earth and Sky (Uranus and Gaia) — the first gods. Then read about all of the Titan gods (there are more than you think (and they weren't all saturnine). I love the story of Kronos and Rhea — it's a crazy story your students will 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! Add a bit of Sisyphus, Midas, Tantalus, Ixion, Phaethon, Icarus, Apollo and Daphne, Pyramus and Thisbe, Psyche and Cupid, and Orpheus and Eurydice!
Integrate your lesson with an included lesson pacing calendar, questions about each myth, discussion questions for group work, bonus vocabulary materials, writing prompts, art and literature connections, and a note-taking template (and more -- this resource is incredibly jam-packed!). Note — each lesson pack comes equipped with a Google Apps link to create digital files — great for distance learning.

- For any myth-related content!
- On characteristics of heroes, hubris, creation myths, and the story of the Titans.
- Note that this bundle does not include full-text, copyrighted material of the myths, but adequate links to a host of access points to the myths are provided!
- Use this resource as a stand-alone bundle or pair it with a more extensive module on Myth, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, Robert Graves's Greek Myths, Edith Hamilton's Mythology, Hesiod's Theogony, or Parallel Myths.
