This is an individual and group project for a Social Studies or English Language Arts class. Each group will be assigned a myth to read (there are links to books you can purchase for these or links to actual websites where you can print them off for free!).
As an individual, the student will be responsible for completing a story map (included) that includes characters, character traits, setting, problem/solution, conflict, and theme. They will also be required to complete a bio poem (included) for a character from their myth. There are rubrics for grading each of these included.
The group project is a choice of one of the following: comic strip (directions, cells, and rubric included), play/reenactment (directions, web resources, and rubric included), or a coat of arms retelling (directions, web resources, and rubric included).
There are also links to really great mythology websites you can use to teach the myths or to extend the activities. I've also included links to many kid-friendly videos to watch for free.
