Create a Mythical Creature
by Penn Museum
Ancient peoples used animals in their myths and legends to help tell stories. Often, ancient peoples combined different animal parts to form one powerful beast, sort of like a Transformer in today’s culture. Look closely at artifacts that showcase Chinese dragons to see if you can identify what animals make up the legendary dragon, then create your own legendary creature using parts of animals that you get to choose!
