Synopsis

World Myths & Legends by

Providing a window into the history, science, and values of the cultures that produced them, this unique exploration of fearsome gods and brave heroes includes hands-on activities, fun facts, and modern-day connections. Projects range from experiencing the Greek tale of Odysseus and making a double soda-bottle whirlpool to fashioning a West African drum from yogurt containers and creating an indoor or outdoor garden according to the Native American story of the Three Sisters. Summarizing the characters and stories that ancient peoples used to explain the natural world and human behavior, this activity guide conducts a fascinating adventure of imagination and mystery, unveiling wonders of the past as well as emphasizing the importance of oral traditions.

Reviews

An excellent introduction to the cultures and myths of a diverse selection of peoples, and one I highly recommend to home-schoolers in particular ... The projects themselves are extremely varied, and go beyond simple craft-ness. For instance, one activity for the Greek section is to use Euclidian geometry to make an equilateral trianglefun with compasses! - Charlotte's Library Blog
