Mythology

Students are using their Chromebooks to inquire into mythology. By the end of the morning they are to creat their own definition if myth.


Some of the definitions included:


Shavon - "Before science people wanted to come up with reasons that we have seasons weather and other things they didn't know why we had so they came up with the gods to explain these things.Each god is in control of a different phenomena there story's explain why we have that phenomena and how we have it."


Essence: "Stories that teach a lesson and explain an event in the world."


Aaron: "A myth is a story that explains something, or teaches us something that we could not explain on our own. Now, obviously we can figure them out through new technology, but back then they wanted to have an explanation, so they made up gods, monsters, and other things that they included in their stories."
