Mythology Quest

PANDORA'S BOX

According to ancient Greek mythology, Pandora, the first woman, was given a box from Zeus as a wedding gift.  Pandora was instructed to never open it.  But she was very curious and one day, when no one was looking, she snuck a peek inside.  As she lifted the lid, all of the evil, we know today, was released into the world. 

During the Mythology Quest program (8/7), the participants were asked, "If you could put any evil back into Pandora's Box, what would it be?"  Here are their answers: 

thunder, fire, mean-ness!, all bad things, Hydra, hunger, cancer, breaking books, breaking stuff, greed (2xs), spiders, bugs, failure, pirates, murdering people, bacteria, Algebra, stealing, homework, war
