Item description

What is the story of Athena, the Greek Goddess of War Strategy and Wisdom, and Arachne, a young Lydian weaver? — Your students are bound to become hooked on the story of a weaving contest gone, horribly, terribly wrong. Share the myth (there is a plentitude of links leading you to dozens of versions of the story online, and this digital download includes a reading card version of the myth!).

This Resource Includes the Following Features:

  • Durable Google Apps Link for Student-facing Documents (Google Slides) 
  • 1 Teacher Two-day Lesson Calendar (with Teacher’s Notes)
  • 1 Key Characters and Places Worksheet
    • Orient your learners by identifying the key characters and the geographical location associated with Athena and Arachne.
  • 1 Reading Card on Athena and Arachne (based on Ovid’s version)
  • 1 Art + Literature Connection (with Visual Aid)
  • 11 Original Comprehension Questions on the Goddess Athena
    • Have students read various myths and stories about Athena and Arachne. Assess them with questions!
    • Includes a Custom Note-taking template to ensure student accountability!
  • Frayer Model Vocabulary Cards (with student sample)
    • Frayer models are a way to get kids to think about vocabulary visually in a four-section square —- A square for meaning, one for examples, another for non-examples, and a sketch. It is amazing to see the work they produce. A great way to decorate your classroom to showcase your kids’ vocabulary-in-text understanding. The cards contain terms, geography, and challenging words (as well as contextual entries fit to the story).
  • Exit Tickets
    • Exit tickets are a way to get data about your students’ understanding of the lesson right before the class is finished. Collect these exit tickets and quickly see what ideas your students picked up the story of Athena and Arachne. I also provide two different tickets to offer academic choice for students.
  • Further Reading List
    • Don’t disregard this further reading list if you think it is merely a bibliography. Share the list with your students or have them do projects based on the research that is available. Assign different sources to students and organize presentations where learning can go deeper into the myth.
  • Answer Keys for all student-facing documents
    • Teachers always ask for answer keys for my products so I made sure I gave you plenty of guidance on what to expect from students in their written and oral responses.

I created this resource with middle and high school students in mind. It is designed for an English Language Arts Mythology unit — 

  • For any myth-related unit!
  • On characteristics of the gods and goddesses, hubris, The Olympians, and more!
  • Use this resource as a stand-alone lesson or, pair it with a larger unit on the Iliad and The Odyssey, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, Robert Graves’s Greek Myths, Ovid’s Metamorphoses, or Edith Hamilton’s Mythology.

Know that this educational digital download is a supplement to a unit on Greek Mythology. The lesson includes links to full-text primary resources but the product itself does not contain copyrighted copies of the individual myths.
