Critical Thinking Questions

1. Name at least three ways our culture would be different if we had no myths and legends. Do you think life would be better, the same, or worse? We wouldn’t have bedtime stories, reason to believe in big foot, or explanations for things. I don’t think things would be the same at all.

2. The bogeyman can be found all over the world. Describe how the bogeyman is portrayed in our culture. In our culture he portrayed to be a monster that lives under the bed. 3. Think of a character trait you believe is important in a person. Now describe a myth or legend from our culture that reinforces the importance of the trait. King Arthur is a good legend because he is noble and strong and those are both great quality’s to betray.

4. The Viking version of the afterlife was an extension of what was important to them on Earth: bravery in battle. Describe what the afterlife might look like to a culture that valued a theme of your choosing. Ideas: wealth, peace, knowledge, entertainment, independence, etc.

5. Food and drink are often the objects of myth and legend. Describe a food or drink that a visitor to our country might think was sacred to us. Meat for sure not many people eat meat around the county as crazy as that seems.
