Myths and Legends

Logo for Myths and Legends
This is a goal-directed instructional design plan I created to teach 3rd or 4th graders about myths and legends. It was created with a real world performance in mind and a well thought-out activity for students to apply what they have learned.

This was a very interesting lessson. I really like the idea of using Google Earth to look at certain landmarks.  Great use of technology for the students.  I also like your extension of adding the stories to a classroom site or blog.  Parents would love to see their child's work.

Great layout of the lesson. I am wondering what tools students will use on the computer. Will they use story writing tools or Google docs. Adding a presentation or recording may enhance this lesson for special needs students or below level students.

Technical Remarks:

No problems
