Greek mythology is so much fun to explore with your students! This activity packet includes FOUR myths:
-The Story of Fire (with character trait literary focus)
-Pandora’s Box (theme in literature literary focus)
-The Seven Pomegranate Seeds (Persephone and the Seasons)
-Orpheus and Eurydice (Journey to the Underworld)
For each myth, you will receive a Readers’ Theater Script. This will have your students actively engaged in the myth rather than merely listening to it or reading it! They will be the characters! In addition, each myth comes with its own assignment that you can have the students complete. The assignments are creative, will hold your students’ attention while allowing them to be imaginative, and look great on display in your classroom and/or bulletin boards! Each assignment comes with a rubric, so it will be easy for you to score and your students will know what is expected of them.
Each Readers’ Theater Script has Questions for Discussion to explore with the students.
This first set in my Greek Myth Activity Series has 45 pages! If you do not like to print out Readers’ Theater Scripts and are trying to save paper, do what I do....upload the Script onto Google Classroom!
NOTE: If you set this up in your SUB BINDER, this would make for some great go to emergency lessons for your sub to use with the students!
