Introducing your Club/Activities: Mythology club aims to teach students the importance of learning about the past through the beliefs of ancient civilizations. Students can find an appreciation for history in a way they might not have exposure to during their normal time in school.
General Directions: Each week, students will learn a different aspect of mythology, or practice information learned in a previous lesson. Activities aim to be as hands on as possible to encourage participation
Tips/Tricks: As students are younger, it is important to be prepared but flexible with lessons. Sometimes, if something isn’t working for your students you might to revert to a backup activity. It is also good to have multiple activities planned for each day. Having a schedule for students in the layout of the club (ex: snack, lesson, cleanup) is helpful for keeping students on track.
