Product Description
In this epic Norse Mythology unit, you and your students will explore the realms (Asgard, Midgard, Jotunheim, etc.) and characters (Odin, Thor, Loki, etc.) of Norse Mythology and study Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey (monomyth). You will apply the Hero’s Journey to the Norse myths as well as Marvel’s Thor and connect the past with the present by comparing Norse myths to The Lord of the Rings and Marvel’s Thor. In other words, you’ll leave your ordinary world, enter a special world filled with giants, dwarfs, dragons, shape changers, kingdoms, and treasures, and return as a hero with a supreme knowledge of the Norse myths, Vikings, and the Hero’s Journey.
