Reflection: Lesson Planning King Midas and the Acrostic Poem - Section 1: Predicting Power


I have found this website to be useful when reading about Greek myths. It tells the myth, explains what it is about, and gives more details about it. You can also find pictures and other facts that are needed to help you teach about other myths and cultural stories from all over.
