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. It introduces the characteristics of myths and legends, then discusses and demonstrates expectations for the students before they practice on their own.
Materials: computer, projector, Google Earth, pencil and paper (or computer lab to type), class website or blog
