Project Description

.....This project lesson will serve as the culminating activity for the mythology unit and will have two main components following class preparations: creature collaborations and digital story creation.

.....Part 1 - Prior to beginning research, students will brainstorm as a class criteria for creature content, story presentation content, and self/peer evaluations. In partner groups assigned by the teacher, based on the “Interest Survey for Mythology Project”, students will do follow-up research (books and online) on mythological creatures studied in class and ones not covered. While researching creatures students will begin developing ideas about a creature they would like to create; a graphic organizer (Mind42) will be used to organize their information. Individually, students will compose an illustration of a creature they would like to work with - the creature must be made up but can contain features of other creatures. Students will then begin a detailed written description of their creature. Details will include physical characteristics as well as behaviors. These descriptions will be posted to the class wiki (without their graphic representation) where they will be viewed by 7th graders from the high school. The 7th graders will draw a creature based on the descriptions submitted to the wiki. These drawings will be scanned and uploaded to the wiki for evaluation by the 5th graders. The 5th graders will be comparing their representations against the 7th grade representations and their descriptions. They will then decide whether to alter their descriptions or use the 7th grade interpretations. All students involved will then complete a self and peer evaluation based on criteria brainstormed in class (5th grade).

.....Part 2 - Prompt: Eurystheus has decided that because Athena helped Hercules with the Stymphalian Lake birds, this labor would not count - this means there must be a replacement labor. 5th grade students will begin a discussion thread (with the 7th graders) on their wiki page designed to aid them in the development of a new labor for Hercules which involves their creature. There can be no killing (must be a capture or other related task) or “blood & guts” in the story. Using an online graphic organizer (Mind42 or xTimeline) students will compile and organize their story ideas. Story elements must be included (characters, setting, plot, etc). They will then create a complete illustrated story based on the prompt and their creature. Stories may be done (depending on interest and skill level) using PowerPoint or PhotoStory, MovieMaker, MS Word or Publisher, or an online story creator like Myths and Legends Story Creator, Pinky Dinky Doo, Pixton, ToonDoo, Kerpoof, or Make Beliefs Comix. Digital stories (or links) will be submitted to the wiki for self and peer evaluation (parents, 7th graders, and classmates).
