This is the first and second myth, in my growing Bundle of Myths about the The Golden Fleece and Jason and the Argonauts, from Ancient Greece.
The cultural myth and Task Cards with close questions, ask students to make connections and think as they read.
These tasks require students to make connections (Text to Self; Text to Text; Text to World)
There are also tasks encouraging Close Reading Skills and higher order thinking.
This is a great resource for your reading center. If students use all 20 cards, it will have sufficient reading and writing activities for approx 4 weeks.
The first is the story of Phrixos and Helle; the second is the first part of the story of Jason and the Argonauts (gathering of the Argonauts, the ship and preparation to leave on the quest)
Part two of The Argonaut story will follow soon.
BE WARNED, as I add more myths and Task Cards, this price will increase!
Included in this package;
1.There is a famous Greek myth that I have retold, called "The Golden Fleece."
2. A retelling of Part 1 of "Jason and the Argonauts"
3.The tales come with itheir own set of 20 task cards, plus black ink master pages. I use these pages to make a small interactive book for the story. The students can complete their tasks, writing and drawing in this little book. You’ll need multiple pages, if you want to make a booklet. These masters can also be pasted into notebooks or simply not used, if you prefer.
4.There are now 40 Task Cards, many of which give students at least two choices of tasks.
5.I’ve included Text to Self, Text to Text and Text to World for every story.
6.I’ve then included some thinking questions and Close Reading tasks to make students delve more deeply into the story and understand their ideas and interpretations.
7.I have included a black ink version of the tale, for you to copy.
8.There's a tracking sheet, so students and teacher can record work as it is completed.
