    Discover Europe Through the World of Mythology

    This project is to take the old oral tradition, more specifically the old myths and to promote it. Myths are the legends of gods, heroes or mysterious myth creatures. They clarify old people's beliefs, their understanding of structure of the world the their moral values. Myths have accumulated the experience of ancestors which were fantastically viewed. This fantasy world is fun and attractive for kids because it evokes the imagination and creativity. By selecting this theme we will encourage children to read, will help to familiarize themselves with the oral tradition, the nation's mythical stories, their significance. The project partners will share their nations’ old stories; will discuss the plot and characters, will present when and how the stories appeared, how they were narrated, what they ment for people. This is a great opportunity to get acquainted with the country’s traditions, culture, ways of thinking, mindset, to find answers what led to these differences, what are the most important values of each nation.
