Canadian Myths and Legends
We started the class by discussing different myths and legends.
We read the book "A Promise is A Promise" by Robert Munsch and Michael Kusugak to get some different ideas for some different folklore creatures.
This week for our craft we created our own creatures. I gave each of the kids a template to describe their creature (they had to be related to Canada in some way). The different creatures the kids came up with were all very creative! Some of their legends were quite funny.
There were various questions such as: Where does it live? How do you know it is near? Is it friendly or scary?
After we were done creating our creatures we went outside to play a game of
"Ogopogo, Ogopogo, Sasquatch", which is exactly like "Duck, Duck, Goose", however, you say Ogopogo and Sasquatch instead.
