We have begun our study of the 1000 year old legend of Beowulf. The children were fascinated to learn that the original story is dervied from a 3000 line epic poem! Using only stills from the animated version, the children built story boards that they tweaked as they uncovered more knowledge of the story. Using inference and deduction, the story boards have evolved and now everyone has mapped their own version of the story from a different perspective.

Keep an eye out for some of our published narratives inspired by this epic poem soon!
