One can look at the night sky as a picture book containing the images of some of the best known monsters, heroes and characters of ancient mythology. Constellation Myths recounts a few of the tales that the ancient Greeks and Romans composed around star formations as they searched for clues about life here on Earth. While we no longer believe that the stars necessarily influence our lives, the stories of the constellations and other planetary objects stay with us today! This program presents the exciting tale of the great hunter, Orion, and explains his placement in the heavens along with his faithful hunting dogs and the animals he hunted -- and who hunted him! In addition, students learn of the origins of the bear constellations, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, and of the vanity that put a queen named Cassiopeia high into the heavens. Part of the multivolume Greek Mythology for Students Video Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
