When we read each story we try to decipher the message. Pandora was told not to open the box but she was sooooooooo curious about what was inside that she released a black cloud of badness, sadness, sickness and death into the world. The moral of this story is to follow instructions and to keep your word. Theseus and the Minotaur also has the same message. In his haste to leave Adriadne on the island Theseus forgot to change the sails and so his father thought he was dead! Similarly, Icarus did not follow his father's advice and flew too close to the sun.
Next week we will plan and write our own quest. What will your cheaters be like? Will you have a battle? What will be the message in your story?
