Storyboard Text

  • I created her from clay.
  • I breathed life into her
  • I made her very beautiful.
  • I taught her how to be both charming and deceitful.
  • I'm going to name her Pandora.
  • In ancient Greece there were two brothers named Epimetheus and Prometheus who upset Zeus, one of the most powerful gods. Zeus had been upset by humans previously and taken the ability to make fire from them as punishment for their actions.
  • What is in the box?
  • Without fire they could not cook or keep themselves warm, so  Prometheus cleverly travelled to the Isle of Lemnos and stole fire from the Blacksmith’s forge. Zeus was furious and decided that humans had to be punished once and for all for their lack of respect.
  •  He devised a cunning plan to punish the two brothers. With the support of Hephaestos, he created a woman from clay and brought her to life with help from the Goddess Athena. Aphrodite made her beautiful and Hermes taught her how to be both charming and deceitful. Zeus called her Pandora and sent her as a gift to Epimetheus.
  • I have to find out what is in there!
  • Pandora was intrigued about what was in the box. She could not think of anything else. This was just what Zeus had planned . . .
  • Finally, Pandora could not stand it any longer. When she knew Epimetheus was out of sight, she crept up to the box, took the key off the high shelf and placed it carefully into the lock. 
  • She took the key, slid it into the lock and turned it. After taking a deep breath, she closed her eyes and slowly lifted the lid off the box. She looked inside, expecting to find gold or treasure.
