Trojan Horse A Story for All Ages

Trojan Horse A Story for All Ages

                                                                              

The story of the Trojan Horse has been passed down for centuries and become the subject of plays, and movies.  The value of  Greek Myths in education as a tool for understanding cultures and  for building an understanding of history can’t be measured.  The Horse figure is a strong attraction, leading to interest in the  study of the war and the people of Troy and Greece.  The use of such an imaginative tool in war and the artistic quality of the horse and its many representations in art since then helps  develop a cross over in curriculum from history to art.

 Adding a storytelling or play  to the process brings other avenues of learning into use as the language, new vocabulary and creation broadens the skill range and taps learning through auditory , tactile and visual stimuli.
