Product Description
This mini-lesson focuses on part of the myth about the Greek hero, Hercules (aka Heracles), the strongest man on earth. He was commanded to perform 12 difficult tasks, and this is about his eleventh one. His objective was to get golden apples from the Garden of the Hesperides. During the adventure, Hercules encountered Atlas, the Greek god who cared for the pillars that held heaven and earth apart. Your students will enjoy reading how Atlas tried to trick Hercules (Heracles) into holding up the heavens, but got tricked by Hercules into taking it back onto his shoulders.
The lesson is complete with 18 multiple choice questions about the myth. Students choose from among 4 choices in each question. The reading comprehension skills used are: identifying types of literature, determining main ideas, locating details, identifying character traits, making inferences, drawing conclusions, and relating causes to effects. The explicit vocabulary tested includes: feats, fortunate, seized, pillars, bellowed, and descended. If I say so myself, this lesson is packed with all sorts of educational benefits for your students. It will provide a wonderful opportunity for them to practice their reading skills, and prepare for Common Core questioning.
It comes with one color drawing, which doesn’t show up in color on my tiff preview. There is also an answer key, and it is a word document that you can easily edit if necessary. Priced to be easy on your pocketbook, too!
