Myths, Legends, and Folktales
In groups of 4-5, you will create a mini-drama of an assigned myth,

drama. The following is a list of requirements for the groups.

Everyone in the group must have a part in the drama.
Be creative in the reenactment of your assigned story—you have
dramatic license—but remember the first requirement.
Your drama must be at least three minutes long and no longer
than five minutes.
