Synopsis

Myths & Legends by Peter D. Riley

Topics covering stories, myths, fables, fairytales, and legends never fail to catch the imagination of children. This CD-ROM focuses on providing resources to help 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. This CD-ROM includes images, video, music, and IWB slideshows covering the following themes: 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)
