    Students will be taken on an adventure through the world of mythology.

    They will discover many different types of myths and learn about the cultures that created them. An introduction to Greek, Roman, Norse, and Native North American myths are presented in a very structured format. A “Major Project" allows the students to demonstrate further knowledge of myths by completing a series of activities. Optional lessons allow the students to further thematic connections, identify practical applications, and to simply have fun. A sampling of myths is used in conjunction with the unit to supplement the lesson plan. This Folktales lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, creative writing activities, crossword, word search and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.

    This was a great introduction to mythology for my Grade 9s, and especially as a lead-in to a more Indigenized Grade 9 English class that incorporates Indigenous themes and worldview. They enjoyed the activities to help them learn, and I felt overall the unit was very accessible and straightforward compared to other mythological materials I've purchased. My students really enjoyed the creative projects (sport of the gods!), and we were able to make connections to our local Indigenous community and their system of beliefs. Thanks!
