Hi everyone, we read the Greek myth about Theseus and the Minotaur. We've decided to retell it in our own words. Yesterday we wrote our first paragraph individually, and today we wrote paragraph two all together! We had a lot of fun....as you'll soon see. Check back later for the whole story.
Prince Theseus, strong and brave, knew that his father had made a terrible decision to send children away to the horrible Minotaur. He decided to put an end to the madness and slay the monster. Early one morning, Theseus set sail for Crete to search for the Labyrinth which was home to the vicious beast. Once he arrived on the sandy shores, he saw the most beautiful princess in the whole wide world. She instantly fell deeply and madly in love with him. She couldn’t help herself ...he was so dreamy with his muscular physique and rugged good looks. She cried out, “ Oh darling you are so magnificent!” Princess Ariadne offered to help him with his quest if he would whisk her away to a new land where the people could admire her great beauty. Since Prince Theseus had come unprepared for a battle, the princess offered him a ball of string to let out behind him so he could find his way out of the maze, and a sword to slice off the evil creature’s head.
