The Cyclops
Directions: You and a clock partner will be creating a comic strip of the story of the Cyclops. Follow the main points of the story outlined below and create story boxes for each of the main points of the story.

Main points



  1. Odysseus and his men land their ship on the shore of an island

  2. They find a cave. They enter and find cheese to eat and sheep’s blankets to lay on.

  3. Cyclops, the one-eyed monster, comes into the cave and rolls a large rock in place to block the door.

  4. Cyclops sees the men, and realizes they have been eating his food. He gets angry.

  5. Odysseus asks that he be nice and share his food with them. He says “no” and eats one of Odysseus’ men.

  6. While Cyclops sleeps Odysseus and his men plan how to attack Cyclops.

  7. Odysseus comes up with a plan to hurt, but not kill Cyclops.

  8. The plan is to have Cyclops drink so much of his wine that he gets drunk and falls asleep. While he is sleeping, Odysseus and his men will take a sharp stick that they have carved a sharp point into, and stab Cyclops in the eye.

  9. The plan works, and Cyclops moves the rock that blocks the cave entrance to call the other Cyclops on the island for help.

  10. Odysseus and his men sneak out of the cave entrance while the blind Cyclops searches for them.
  11. Once Odysseus and his men reach their boat they start to sail away. Odysseus taunts Cyclops, saying the monster could not beat him.


  12. Cyclops is Poseidon’s son, and he asks Poseidon to punish Odysseus for what he has done to him.
