Myths to Use: Planning and Resources
The trick when planning for teaching about the Ancient Greek Myths is choosing the correct texts for the right type of writing. There are of course a wide range of myths to choose from but some are more commonly known than others and will excite your children more than others. To lead into work on the Minotaur (the hideous beast imprisoned forever in the labyrinth), it would be good to look at the story of Daedalus and Icarus. To make a comparison of the features of a myth and to lead into some work based on setting, you might like to look at Perseus and the Gorgon's Head (also known as the Medusa's Head). There are a wide variety of myths and you will need to choose wisely to suit the needs of your class. Otherwise enjoy, and have a quick look at what is on offer below to help you.
