Pandora's Box 

You have all read the story of Pandora, and her lack of control to dampen the temptation to open the box, after specifically being told not to. You know what happened next. It was Pandora whose curiosity got the better of her. One day, she used the key to open the box and as she raised the lid, out flew all the bad things in the world today - envy, sickness, hate, disease. Pandora slammed the lid closed, but it was too late. Her love, Epimetheus, heard her weeping. He came running. Pandora opened the lid to show him it was empty. Quickly, before she could slam the lid shut, one tiny bug flew out. He gave Pandora a big buggy smile in thanks for his freedom and flew away. That tiny bug was named Hope. And Hope made all the difference in the world.


Your task this week is to create Pandora's Box. You can do this in form of a Poster or an actual box. I have attached some examples below. Think about the bad things that are happening in the world today; what have you learned from the evil that escaped Pandora's Box and why do you think 'Hope' was placed in a box of evil? 


Today's English task is to learn about morals; what does it mean? I would like you to think about the moral of this story?  Thinking about our christian values; choose one more 'good' that you would add to the box if you could and why? 


Once you have completed your project, I will upload your creativity on the website as soon as you have sent a photo of your finished Box or Poster. 


I look forward to seeing your artistic skills.
