Teaching English to kids – myths and legends

on November 30, 2014

The kids had fun drawing scenes from some of the stories we read about myths from around the world:

First up – Theseus and the Minotaur. They enjoyed the story but thought that King Ageus was a bit premature jumping into the sea when he saw that Theseus’ ship had a black sail rather than the white one that would have meant that he was returning victorious. “He should have waited to find out for sure, silly man” seemed to be the general opinion. I’m not too sure why Theseus has a bicycle in one picture…




The following week we read about Odysseus and his Extraordinary Journey. They liked the variety of monsters in this one.



After the Greek dramas we moved on to some Native American myths. The story of How the Rainbow was Made was a popular choice



And then there was the Golden Man of Legendary Wealth – the legend of El Dorado



After this story the kids rebelled, demanding something more grown up, because “fairy tales are for babies”. Well ok then. I had to go and raid my library to find something more sophisticated to keep them entertained. But they still like doing drawing in every class, so there will be more artwork in posts to come. They’re a demanding bunch, but great fun to teach.
