The 12 Labours of Hercules

Hercules performed twelve labours given to him by King Eurystheus of Tiryns. For twelve years, he travelled all over to complete these incredible tasks. His labours were: One: Kill the Nemean Lion Two: Kill the Lernean Hydra Three: Capture the Cerynian Hind Four: Capture the Erymanthian Boar Five: Clean the Augean Stables Six: Kill the Stymphalian Birds Seven: Capture the Cretan Bull Eight: Capture the Horses of Diomedes Nine: Take the Girdle of the Amazon Queen Hippolyte Ten: Capture the Cattle of Geryon Eleven: Take the Golden Apples of the Hesperides Twelve: Capture Cerberus Can you rewrite the story of one of Hercules' labours? Pick the one that interests you the most and use the internet to research what actually happened. There's some excellent videos on YouTube that will help. Feel free to write the story behind more of his labours if you would like to!
