Living in Louisiana, I decided to tie our mythology unit to Mardi Gras. After all, most New Orleans area carnival krewes are rooted in mythology. (Well, their names, anyway!) This project will have your students creating their own Mardi Gras krewes, based on a mythological character. They will be directed to a few websites where they will learn about the history of Mardi Gras, and the Carnival culture. This is a great way to have your students learn about mythology and how it can tie unto our everyday lives. Students will create a shoebox float, complete some notes, and give a presentation on their findings.
