Legends Project – Period 5
In class you were split up into groups of six or seven. Each group was given one of these four legend areas of focus:
- Legends from the United States (not of Native American Cultures)
- Native American (North, Central, or South) Legends – Apache, Sioux, Chrokee, Seminole, Comanche, Eskimo, Inca, Muskogee, Aztec, etc. There are so many such that there are too many to list.
- Western Legends (non U.S.) – Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Austria, Italy, Malta, Greece, United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland
- Eastern Legends – North & South Korea, Vietnam, China, Japan, Thailand, India, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Nepal, Laos, Cambodia
This will be an ongoing project. It will unfold over the next two weeks.
- First, each group member must find and read at least one legend each from the area your group has been assigned. Be prepared to present your legend to your group. Only one person can work on any one legend.
- Second, you will meet with your groups to discuss the legends you each found. Your goal is to identify any common characteristics the different legends share.
- Third, and finally, each group will prepare an oral presentation to the class through which you will share your research and ideas.
Now, get this project going.
- What area of focus are you working in?
- Local Legends

You may feel free to share here: a summary of the legend you are working on, a link to a website where we might read the legend itself, some vocabulary we may need in order to fully understand the legend.
Be prepared to discuss your legend with your group tomorrow.
