Today, you are going to start to write your stories. You will write your story in three parts. Most stories have a beginning, middle and end.

  • In the middle, you could add conflict and a problem to solve.
  • At the end there could be a dramatic rescue. The ending could be happy or sad.

Why do you think a helmet with large horns or wings would not have been very practical in battle?

How can we tell if a person or event is a myth or historical fact?
