Writing your own myth
- Watch myths online and read Greek myths to get your research done. Try this link for ideas: https://www.literacywagoll.com/myths-and-legends.html
- Start thinking about your hero, your villain and a problem
- Do some research on the Greek Gods as they were often involved in stories. For example, Zeus was often in a bad mood and would do things to entertain himself. The Gods lived on Mount Olympus and looked down at the humans below them. Maybe you could have a Greek God in your myth?
