Happy Mousey Monday and welcome to June! We are already six months into 2013, half way into the year!
The month of June is named after the Roman goddess Juno, wife and sister of the god Jupiter. Discovery Education has an excellent encyclopedia article you can share with your students titled Juno (mythology):
Juno is equivalent to the Greek goddess Hera, daughter of the Titans Cronus and Rhea and sister and wife of the god Zeus. Discovery Education also has an encyclopedia article you can share with your students about Hera titled Hera:
Both Juno and Hera are the queens of the gods, and goddesses of women and marriage. Discovery Education has a 20 minute full video titled Myths and Legends: Ancient Greece that outlines popular tales such as the Minotaur and Daedalus, and stories of Ancient Greece. The full video also includes a teacher’s guide that includes ways to incorporate the video into a lesson plan for the classroom.
Welcome again to June! We hope that you and your students continue to enjoy Discovery Education throughout this month! If you want to share your thoughts and comments, please feel free to reach out to us at (@DESupportStars) with #mouseymondays!
