This PowerPoint is an excellent introduction to myths. It starts off with a story of a seemingly inexplicable natural event. It then outlines how myths were created and why there were created. It gives examples of what myths were used for and what the qualities of myths are. It is a wonderful introduction to myths, particularly Greek myths.
