This is a myth, The Golden Fleece, 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.
This is the story of Phrixos and Helle; I will follow up with the story of Jason and the Argonauts very soon!
Included in this package;
1.There is a famous Greek myth that I have retold, called "The Golden Fleece."
3.The tale comes with its 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 20 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.
Buy this individually or I'm also listing this as part of a growing BUNDLE, if you want the next episodes of Jason and the Argonauts journey and quests.
