This is the first in my series of 'quests' for a World Mythology unit and the most popular of my products to date.
The materials herein may be used in mixed ability classes; I have used it with such groups including EAL and SEN learners, but much of it is open-ended meaning it is rigorous for all.
★ WAIT! Did you already pay for my Greek Mythology Bundle
? If so, this item is included so just go to your 'My Purchases' page and re-download the bundle to get this for free! ★
All the activities in this unit have the aim of introducing students to the world of mythology, starting with Greek myths and moving on to explore myths from around the world.
Included in this pack are 4 activities, based on Greek Mythology. The main skills focuses are (1) identifying key ideas and (2) researching effectively.
UPDATED MAY 2017
Now includes Google Drive version for students to complete on Google Docs, One Drive or an offline word processor such as Word or Pages.
Timing will very much depend on the students you are working with but I usually allow at least 1 hour for the class to try the different activities, while I monitor and encourage revision/improvements as appropriate.
You will find:
→ teaching notes
→ learning intentions, skills and success criteria for each activity
→ an answer key
→ printable task sheets and worksheets
→ landscape and portrait blank pages with unit headers to create your own additional sheets
→ offline activities with opportunities to include online research skills
→ Icarus & Daedalus text
→ The Minotaur text
