The 7th graders have been learning about myths in their social studies class. They have been reading examples of different legends and tall tales in language arts. They started working on creating their own modern examples of myths and legends. Some students chose a myth that they read, and changed it up to become their own unique version. Other students chose to write more of an adventure story, similar to Percy Jackson. Those that chose to write a legend, picked a person from modern times and tell an exaggerated tale of how they became legendary. Here are a few examples from the class.
The Kidnapping of Persephone by Brianna
Rock and Roll Critters by Cayla
The Legend of Steve Jobs by Lily
My Modern Myth by Rachel
Arachne and Athena by Sarah
