From Apollo to Zeus - including such well-known mythological figures as Pandora, Midas, Pygmalion, Daedalus and Icarus, and many more - these majestic and mysterious stories provide insight not only into the lives of those who told them, but also into the modern character. These myths offer your students a unique context in which to examine their own emotions, strengths, and weaknesses as they learn about the ancient culture from which the stories arose.
