 The rewards of studying mythology are many. Knowledge of mythology increases theappreciation of literary reference, provides a basis for the understanding of art, aids in theacquisition of vocabulary, and helps to create historical perspective. An interest in mythology canbe a springboard to the study of foreign language, comparative mythology, anthropology,literature, art history, and world history.As you invite mythology into your classroom, it is our hope that you and your children will findthese packets enjoyable and useful.
