Students will learn about Hercules, Eurystheus, Copreus, Diomedes, his Mares (Podargos, Lampon, Xanthos, and Deinos), Abderus, Hera, Zeus, and Alexander the Great.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

It should be noted that this particular tale is quite gruesome, as it contains horses that eat the flesh of any human unfortunate to cross their path.
