The Labors of Heracles....

Dear Mythology Kids,
I am so proud of those that have presented; you have clearly done your research! In preparation for your quiz on Thursday, I have included a "practice quiz" for you below.

For those of you you missed class today, Tuesday, November 17th, we discussed the following monsters associated with Heracles. In order to be prepared for the quiz on Tuesday, I would contact a friend that is currently in Mythology, or learn more about the characters through research. You have your handouts covering the characters, as well. THE MINOTAUR and DAEDALUS were also discussed, but these characters WILL NOT appear on Thursday's quiz.

1. Man-Eating Mares of Diomedes
