Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Myth Madness: Introducing Greek Mythology - Section 3: Label New Learning

 

Throughout the upcoming series of lessons, you'll see that each day, the students and I begin by looking at our Greek Mythology Family Tree, as well as add any "newly introduced" characters to the chart each day after reading the day's new myth.  Creating this visual for students helps keep all of the Greek Mythology characters organized, and allows students to build and connect with their prior knowledge gained from other myths.
