Grade 8 Creation Myths

Comment 0



Over the first part of the first quarter, the Grade 8 students were exposed to a variety of creation myths. They read “Panku Creates the World” and “Nuwa Creates People” and discussed how these myths reflect on Chinese values and traditions.

The class also read “The Origin of Japan and her People” and “Marduk Creates the World from the Spoils of Battle” (Babylonian) and they noticed how creation myths have similar plots. In fact, they were able to trace some elements of the myth to modern-day adventure stories.
