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

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.
