Activity Overview


For many years audiences have enjoyed learning about King Arthur, Merlin, the Knights of the Round Table, Guinevere and Lancelot, and more. It is true that the legend of King Arthur is fascinating, but what is real and what is myth?


Using a T-Chart labeled with Realistic Elements (or Historically Accurate or Factual) and Mythical Elements (or Fictional), students should choose different events or elements that illustrate parts of the story that could have actually happened, and those we know could not have happened. Many of the tales about King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table are folklore or based on speculation.

Historically, certain things did occur, and others are possible, even if they are not exactly like Arthurian legend. Other elements, like magic spells, dragons, and the holy grail are myths we can mark as definitely fiction.
