Plan de lectura: Egyptian and Greek Myths

on April 11, 2016

On this post we will read short stories about Egyptian and Greek mythology. A myth is a story based on tradition or legend, which has a symbolic meaning.

Myth 1: Egyptian creation

Myth 2: How the Gods began

Greek Myth: The Wooden Horse

This is a short story about the legend of the wooden horse at the Troyan war.

Other Greek Myths: Finally, here is the link to other short stories of Greek myths including an easy version of the Minotaur.

Greek MythDaedalus and Icarus

This is the story of one young man who did not listen to his father’s warning. Play the story to find out what happened.

Here is the link to the story text of Daedalus and Icarus (This story has not an easy read version)

Greek Myth: Pandora’s Box

It was just a simple box. What was in it? Could it be gold, or silver, even precious stones? Surely just taking a very quick look inside couldn’t do any harm – could it?

Here is the link to the story text and an easy read version of Pandora’s Box

Third Greek Myth: Theseus and the Minotaur

A long time ago, in a dark Labyrinth, lived a terrifying monster. A monster that ate humans. Could the brave Theseus defeat the beast? Why not read the story and find out.

Here is the story text and an easy read version of Theseus and the Minotaur
