This Week: The Hero and the Minotaur

posted Jan 16, 2015, 6:46 AM by Jason Brunken
This week in Grade 6, we will be exploring Ancient Greece as we read a version of the well-known Greek myth "Theseus and the Minotaur" called The Hero and the Minotaur. This class is really interested in Ancient Greece and their stories of gods and heroes. I hope they enjoy this week's reading. If you are not familiar with the story of Theseus and the Minotaur, take a minute to read more here or watch the video below.

This Friday, we will begin our main writing assignment for this month: a myth. Students will use their knowledge of ancient civilizations and mythology to write a myth that uses one of the pantheon of gods from an ancient civilization. Students will continue to work on their myths next week.

We have grammar, spelling, and writing this week as well. I will be preparing the class to write expository essays this week. There will be a spelling test on Friday so please remember to review the spelling words. The weekly handout is posted for your convenience below.
