Jump into your favorite mythology on this trip around the world's legendary stories, themed around the creatures with human-like traits of physical appearances.

By the end of this lesson, students will be familiar with four types of mythology as related through three, human hybrid-themed stories. Students will be able to make connections with these mythologies by discussing parallels that we have in our modern world and how we can relate back to the ancient myths.
I have spent 5 years studying various world mythologies via multiple facets; I have traveled all over the world, from Mexico's Chichén Itzá to the Greek Parthenon and many other places in between. I have taken university courses, sat in on lectures from historians and archaeologists, and researched both fact (scholarly articles / research papers) as well as modern day fiction built around the ideas found in myth and cultures from all corners of the globe. I continue to educate myself with modern research, literature and seminars whenever possible, all to further my interest in the stories I have studied from multiple cultures.
At the end of the lesson, and optional extension activity will be given to the students to allow for an opportunity to extend their learning beyond the confines of the classroom.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
