Directions: Choose ONE of the activities below to complete for a project grade
Points: 100 points
Due: At the beginning of class, Friday, September 24, 2010

1. Draw pictures of 3 of the characters in “Sigurd, The Dragon Slayer.” Each picture should be on a separate
   piece of paper, and the front of the paper should be titled with the name of the character. On the back of
   each paper, explain at least 3 decisions you made concerning the appearance of that character or how you
   depicted them. Refer back to the story (starts on page 676) to find your details.

2. Describe, in detail, a monster and a hero that could appear in a modern myth. Some things to consider:
   What will your monster look like, feel like, sound like, smell like? What treasure will your monster guard?
   What powers or abilities will your monster have, and why will someone fear this monster? What will your
   hero look like, feel like, sound like, smell like? Why does the hero want the treasure (it should be a worthy
   reason!) What qualities will your hero possess that will help him/her defeat the monster? What makes this
   person a hero? Use lots of descriptive details (adjectives!) to flavor your writing. Your writing should be at
   least 2 full pages in length, handwritten or typed.

3. Write your own original myth. Make sure it has all the main parts of a story plot – refer back to pages 2 and
   3. It can be a traditional-sounding myth that explains a natural phenomenon or religious belief, or it could
   be a more modern myth, like the Tooth Fairy, explaining an invented part of our modern experience. Your
   myth should be 2 full pages in length, handwritten or typed.
