Based on the starter activities in the Writing Sparks books, these fifteen starter activities are tailored to be used along side a Greek mythology unit. Each activity asks the students to completing a writing task of some sort, whether that be a short story, an advertisement, or a poem that relates to a myth, god, goddess, or creature. Each 8 1/2 x 11 page contains two copies of a starter activity. These are fun, quick activities that give students practice with various forms of writing, but also give an opportunity for them to review and connect to prior learning in the mythology unit. Many activities also include options for enrichment for accelerated or GATE students.
