Lesson Plan: Modern Mythology
I/O: Students Will Be Able To identify characteristics of a myth.
Write an explanation for something you do not know. Something in nature or technology or science. It can be ridiculous or accurate, but make it in the form of something fantastic.
Conclusion: Myths helped our ancestors make sense of the natural world. Now, modern myths let us provide lessons and examples. Just because we can explain the natural world does not mean we let go of these fantasies. As advanced as our science gets, we as humans, still need imagination.
