Dear Student,
If you recall the original Powerpoint guide I have made for you - it follows the above themes one after the other. I really think that there is no need to ammend as it follows the themes above accordingly. I think that what needs to be done is to just renew the titles per section to be in accordance with the themes above to make sure that it follows the theme plainly. It does not matter if the each theme takes more than 2 to 3 slides to present. This is because each mythology is unique and each sections/themes can be shorter or longer dependent upon the appearance of such themes in the mythology. Take for example Flora & Fauna - in Greek mythology this will be a longer section. Remember that in each of the themes, students can take liberty in renaming section titles to adapt to the structures and details of the mythology they've chosen. Now, if you recall, I have rewied and edited this Guide Sheet for you yesterday:

Within 3 days she licked the figure free of the ice and Buri emerged who in time had a son called Bor.
