I have an upcoming class to teach this weekend on Norse Mythology. It will be a basic intro aimed toward children (but open to all ages). It’s an hour long, and I have all the information, names, genealogies, etc. prepared. I would like to tell a story, too, but I can’t decide which one.
Freyr and Gerd?
Balder, Loki, and the Mistletoe?
Odin, Ymir, and the creation of Midgard?
So what’s your favorite story from Norse Mythology? It will need to be something that will appeal to both genders, and a fairly large age range (say 5 to 12). Some adults may be in attendance, also. I might have time for two, if I condense a few of the overview items.
Suggestions, if you please!
