Synopsis

Myths & Legends by Peter D. Riley

Topics covering stories, myths, fables, fairy tales, and legends never fail to catch the imagination of children. This book focuses on how to teach Myths and Legends from many different cultures and time periods in a fun and engaging way. Importantly, this book focuses on how to make sure that any project (from one lesson to a whole week) covers multiple subjects across the curriculum. Themes in this title are as follows: 1. Myths and legends around the world (general outline of creatures of myth and legends as established by different peoples); 2. Places in the story (fantasy lands to lands where it may have happened); 3. People in the story (good, bad, fairies, goblins, ghosts); 4. Animals in the story (lions, horses, monsters); 5. Actions in the story (illustrating various motives and lessons to be learnt); 6. Ancient Greek myths and legends (famous stories and characters); 7. The Americas and Africa (examples of peoples, animals and monsters, and lessons to be learnt); 8. Europe, Asia and Australia (examples of peoples, animals and monsters, and lessons to be learnt); 9. Local Myths and legends (using local archives and storytellers)
