This Mayan Myths/Folktales lesson plan also includes:
Middle schoolers work on summarizing a story, and they determine if it is a legend, a myth, or a fable.

They present their findings to the class and discuss the difference between the myths and the Bible. Use this lesson as background for a discussion about modern adaptations of myths.
