Project Description

Fourth graders at PS 48 spent a year exploring the roles of myths and mythological characters. Students read Greek myths and discussed the function of myths as explanations for mysteries and questions. The group then developed their own questions about the world and created stories that acted as mythological "answers" to their questions. Students developed central characters from their myths through writing, painting, and musical explorations, and ended the residency by creating detailed costumes to represent the roles and attributes of their invented mythological creatures.
