I created this WORKSHEET for the common core standard RL.4.4. This worksheet asks students to make sense of allusions by using their prior knowledge about common characters found in Greek mythology. The allusions are put into contexts that students can relate to within their school setting, or lives as children.
Use this as a worksheet during a lesson, a station during centers, or simply as an exit ticket after you have taught about the common characters found in Greek Mythology.
This worksheet is true to the standard in that it has the students truly determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are USED IN A TEXT. This is the next step after you have done all the fun teaching about Greek Mythology.
