Write a Creation Myth
All cultures have their own story of creation that describes the first appearance of people on Earth or of the people of their civilization. For example, the Navajo believe that the first beings crawled up through a reed from the three underworlds into the Fourth World, where the process of creating all living things began. These creation myths frequently involve deities and different materials, like swirling waters or mud, from which the earth is made. If you lived in an ancient civilization, how might you have believed that the earth was created? Would your creation myth involve deities, already existing animals or creatures, and mountains or volcanoes?
