Watch two videos of two myths from different cultures. Compare these two myths and write down the differences and similarities.
Choose a legend and make a cartoon of this story.

for the teacher:
Different cultures have different cultural stories, myths and legends. Surprisingly, many stories have similar elements. Most cultures have stories about creation of earth, lakes, animals and people. Did you know that many cultures have a story about a flood that covers the earth? Or that an initiator (sometimes a spirit or a god) thinks, says, sings or dreams something that is becoming real.
Let your students find out that different cultures have the same elements. Hopefully, this creates more understanding for different cultures.
