This activity is a pre-reading strategy. Prior to the students beginning a unit on mythology, they would take part in this fun activity. This previewing strategy includes questions and prompts about monsters and creatures, heroes, tragedy, allusions, and purpose. It promotes group discussion and piques students' interest. They enjoy moving around the room and are more involved in small and large group discussions. If you do not have room to move about, it can also be done at students' desks. This is an original carousel created by Christine Fry.
You can also revisit these questions after the unit in order to check for comprehension.
