Mythological Word Origins

Review myths and the characters therein, connecting them to vocabulary words in the English language today. Begin by searching online for myths and character names. With at least ten names that are familiar English words, students use the dictionary to explain how the definition relates to the person's characteristics. After writing a short history of Norse, Greek, and Roman mythology, learners each act out a character he or she researched. Some links may not lead to accurate resources.
