Mythology - Demeter and Persephone
« on: April 10, 2011, 06:59:35 pm »
My grade 3 students have a chapter in the textbook about mythology (Cupid's Arrow).  I found a video about Demeter and Persephone online.  I transcribed the story into a ppt (since I felt like the different accent in the video would be too difficult).  I let them watch and listen to it once.  Then I let them watch with me doing a voice-over.  Then I read the story to the students and asked comprehension questions about it.  We ended the lesson by having the students create a comic strip about the story.  This took 2 classes.
