Mythology characters research and coloring sheets ignite students’ interest in Greek myths! These popular pages now come in two more formats: lined research sheets and themed writing paper. Click on Preview for examples of each format.
Mythology Characters Research and Coloring Fill-in-the-Blank Sheets
Each of the 38 mythology character sheets features a blackline illustration (created by Educlips
), Greek and Roman names, and simple fill-in-the-blank information for the character.
Mythology Characters Research and Coloring Lined Pages
These sheets feature the same 38 characters. Instead of fill-in-the-blank, each page has a picture and lines to take notes or write a short essay.
Themed Myth Writing Paper
These pages have more lines for longer writing projects. The character's Greek name is listed at the top and a small image of the character decorates the page at the bottom right. Each of the 38 characters has its own piece of stationery.
Bonus: Activities for Describing, Comparing, and Contrasting Characters
Four pages allow students to determine a character's archetype, write a character description, compare and contrast with a Venn diagram, and write a compare/contrast essay.
