This product is a creative writing assignment I use with my students after reading Greek mythology. Students are given the task to write their own myth using a Greek god or goddess. They need to either explain "the unexplainable" (i.e. where the moon came from, etc.) or teach a lesson. I get some very interesting stories from this assignment.
This product includes the assignment sheet, rubric, and a graphic organizer for students to use during the prewriting phase of the assignment.
