MythWeb: This "guaranteed kidsafe" site is appropriate for students and teachers with an interest in Greek mythology. Appealing and colorful cartoons (some animated) depict the world of Greek gods and heroes.
In this free research assignment students research different gods, goddesses, creatures and humans from Greek Mythology. I had my students work individually at home and I had them pick names from a hat. You can have them work in groups and do it in class using laptops if you wish. Some of my students prepared PowerPoint presentations, some made posters and others just made a speech. The CCSS for grades 6-12 are included.
This four week mythology unit allows students to do an independent study on specific mythological characters as well as work collaboratively to form a creative presentation about a specific culture's mythological beliefs. Students learn about Mythology in Ancient Cultures, the 7 Elements of Culture, the History of Storytelling, and how mythology has influenced our lives today. Independently, students create a booklet after researching a specific mythological creature.
