Product Description

In this fun lesson, students will write a myth based on a winter animal. They’ll use spinners to help them determine their myth’s topic, explanation, character traits and even the setting. Then, they’ll complete a pre-write to plan out their writing before crafting a myth to share with classmates!

This lesson works great all on its own, or it’s a wonderful addition to a myth study or myth writing unit. You could even leave this lesson behind for a substitute. Oh, and it’s perfect to teach on those school days before or after a winter break!

BONUS – This resource provides an opportunity for students to conduct some research about the animal they will be writing about. There’s a Mini-Research Tracker included in this resource!

During this lesson, students will:

  • Learn about the myth genre.
  • Read and review a mentor text.
  • Use interactive spinners to develop elements of their own myths.
  • Complete a detailed pre-write to plan their myths.
  • Meet with peers to discuss their ideas.
