Step 3: Write Your Myth Previous Next

Are you ready to write your myth? Then let's begin!

Pretend you have an audience of the king's court before you. Or that you are in a cave with other cave painters trying to summon the sun or the rain. Or think of yourself as a griot in an African village who is about to explain to your people how the world began. Using your brainstorming observations and ideas, write a story that explains a phenomenon in the natural world that you've experienced or witnessed on TV. You can pick almost anything — a snowstorm, an earthquake, or even a rainy day. Be as creative as you can — let your imagination run wild!

If you need more help, try using the Myth Brainstorming Machine to get your ideas flowing.

When your myth is complete, publish it online to share with other kids..
