Ancient Greek Mythical Monster Report

Ancient Greek Mythical Monster Report

We used this lesson to write non-chronological reports about Greek monsters. Children choose which monsters they want to research and must find out five facts about each one. My lowest ability only managed two monsters in the time, whereas the top ability could find out, and draw very detailed sketches of, four monsters. The children drew their creatures on plain A6 paper and then cut around them and stuck them onto their reports. (Some additional teaching will be required on note-taking and then turning those notes back into paragraphs)
