27/04/20 - Mythical Beasts and where to find them

Attached are a couple of straight forward tasks to warm up the children:

  • a wordsearch about the heroes they have researched
  • a crossword about the beasts they have researched

Below are links to various websites that tell the stories of these heroes. As with all stories that start as myths or fables they will differ slightly from each other, but the themes are the same. Also attached at the bottom is a similar sheet to the monsters. Your job is to research each hero (If you only want to do one hero that's fine), and describe him. What did he look like and what was his character and personality like? I have left a box for you to draw what each hero looks like (Mr Dear is terrible at drawing so never panic if your hero looks like a stickman!), but it's the written descriptions that will paint a picture in my mind of what kind of person your hero is. Good luck in this quest.
