Teaching Idea #1

From where did the legend of King Arthur originate? Same question for Merlin? Which of the characters from the King Arthur legends is most closely associated with a real historical person we can identify today?

Teaching Idea #2

If King Arthur was a real person, he likely ruled in the 5th century. What other kingdoms existed around the world at that same time? Is the information we know about them more or less concrete than what is know about King Arthur?

Teaching Idea #3

Think about another hero’s journey that centers on an orphan that you’ve seen or read (ex. Harry Potter, Ray Skywalker, etc.) and compare and contrast it to this story.
