Item description

Middle and High Schoolers will become hooked by the story of Phaëthon, a boy who searches for his father, the sun god. Retold in classic literature by Ovid in the Metamorphoses, the story has been redone and adapted in many different versions, including Edith Hamilton and Thomas Bulfinch’s Mythology. Note: this resource does not contain the full text of the story (but it does, as a bonus, include a QR code to access an audio recording!).

This resource is optimized for distance learning. Modify this resource for use on Google Apps and Google Classroom, and other classroom management sites.

Included in this bombastic lesson:

  • 3-day Lesson Calendar and Teacher’s Notes

  • Stay organized and on-track. Note — this lesson is part of a larger mythology unit.

  • 6 Art & Literature Connections

  • Have your students compare and contrast texts in different artistic forms.

  • Key Characters and Places Anchor Chart

  • It also includes instructions for a geography and culture related homework assignment.

  • 2 Versions of Reading Comprehension Questions

  • Both versions include 11 questions.

  • 10 Critical Thinking Questions

  • Lead your class in discussing the myth — either as a whole class activity, or in groups, as a carousel activity, or in pairs. As long as kids talk and refer back to the myth, you get this!

  • 2 Note-taking Templates

  • Use a three-box template when giving notes about the Midas myth or when students work together in groups.

  • Also included: Phaethon-inspired notepaper (for printing).

  • 11 Frayer Models for Vocabulary Instruction

  • I love using Frayer models in the middle and high school classroom. It is based on a basic design — a four-square sheet of paper. But students can analyze any word or phrase.

  • Academic vocabulary, Mythology Terms, Literary Terms, and Geography

  • 2 Half-Sheet Exit Tickets

  • Choose from two different exit ticket options. Very useful for getting a quick view of how your students are “getting” the lesson.

  • Further Reading List on Exploring the Myth of Phaethon

  • I use this list for students to go further with the myth. What else can you find about Phaethon?

  • Includes FREE Drag-and-Drop Easel Activity and Assessment!
