Ancient Greek Creation of the World Reading
My students love Greek Mythology, but always had questions like;
1) How was the Earth created?
2) What came before Zeus and Mount Olympus,
3) How and why did the three major Olympians decide to divide the World as they did?
4) Where did the cyclops originate?
So I developed this 3 page reading from a number of Web sources. I also have included comprehension questions. I have used it several times and my student are really fascinated by it and it gives them a better foundation before diving into Greek Mythology.
This reading answers all your questions about the origin of the World according to Greek mythology. Enjoy it.
If you are interested, I have a Power Point for this reading related to the Greek Creation story which I was really happy with at
There is also a whole story bundle for not too much more with the story, the Power Point, a crossword puzzle, and a vocabulary Detective activity at.
