Summary Defying the gods: Many ancient myths were stories designed to warn people against poor judgment and excessive pride or hubris. Those who dared to cross the gods, compete with them or question their authority did so at great peril. These stories illustrate the often-fatal consequences of such behavior.
In The Trojan War, students will be fascinated by a vivid retelling of scenes from Homer's legendary epic poem, The Iliad, which reveals the story of a war between the Greeks and Trojans in which the gods of Mount Olympus took sides.
In The Journeys of Odysseus, students discover how Odysseus learns to overcome adversity and his own weaknesses in his adventures with the dreaded Cyclops, the mischievous Circe and a terrifying sea creature known as the Scylla to find his way back home to his kingdom and family.
In Nature Myths, students learn the mythical rationale behind the seasons, discover the origin of the echo, explore the sun god Helios and learn how the beautiful flower, Narcissus, was born from a young man's vanity.
Constellation Myths recounts a few of the tales that the ancient Greeks and Romans composed around star formations as they searched for clues about life here on Earth. While we no longer believe that the stars necessarily influence our lives, the stories of the constellations stay with us today.
