Product Description
This is a physical lesson I use at the start of my mythology units to engage the class and get them enthused about our area of study.

The materials herein may be used in mixed ability classes; I have used it with such groups including EAL and SEN learners, but much of it is open-ended meaning it is rigorous for all.

+++WAIT! Did you already pay for my Greek Mythology Bundle? If so, this item IS included so just go to your 'My Purchases' page and re-download the bundle to get this for free!+++

All the activities in this unit have the aim of introducing students to the world of mythology, starting with Greek myths and moving on to explore myths from around the world.

This pack has 2 parts, based on Greek Mythology. The first is a cloze worksheet with optional extension instructions to practice effective search skills.

The second is a set of activity ideas for setting up your own 'in house' Olympics.
***UPDATE April 2017: 2 new activities added to the Olympics. There are now 8 different activities to choose from in your setup.***

Timing will very much depend on the students you are working with but I usually allow at least 1.5 hours, assuming that students will be in teams for the Olympics and everyone will select their events.

In this download, you will find:
-teaching notes
-a printable worksheet
-an answer key
-instructions for setting up your Olympic event
