Product Description
In this lesson students will learn the characteristics of, and the differences between, myths and legends. Students will then work together to create their own mythical world by building a world map and brainstorm rules to govern their world. Next, students will write either a narrative myth or a legend that takes place within this world and either incorporates parts of it to teach a moral lesson (legend), or works to explain why something in that world exists (myth).

Using both self and peer editing, students will revise rough drafts and publish a final draft of their myth or legend.
