This is the myth, of Jason and The Golden Fleece. A re-told version in three parts.
A printable, Reading Comprehension Unit for literacy centers with 60 Task Cards with close questions, asking students to make connections and think deeply 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.
Each section has a stand-alone story and 20 task cards, with master sheets for responses and tracking. If students use all 20 cards, IN EACH SECTION, there will be sufficient reading and writing activities for approx 4 weeks.
So this BUNDLE will provide enough activities for a term: tasks delving into the main events, characters, motives, facts, opinions etc.
The first is the story of Phrixos and Helle; the second is the story of Jason and the Argonauts, gathering together, building the ship and preparing to leave on the quest: the final part tells of the voyage, the problems, the quest and the return home.

The part comes with its own set of 20 task cards, plus black ink master pages for reading responses. These pages make a small interactive book for the story. The students can complete their tasks, writing and drawing in this little book.
