After Scroll and Steps teach Minor, I promise to return with fun exercises and compositions.
Pay close attention to the pitch patterns you are about to learn.

Progressing up an octave performing all naturals from A to A, form the A Natural Minor scale.  [ W ½ W W ½ W W ]    

Minor is also called the Aeolian mode.

The Aeolians were Ancient Greeks. The Aeolian Mode was named after Aeolus, who in Greek Mythology was considered “keeper of the winds.”
Heinrich Glarean is credited with preserving music from earlier centuries and he named the 12 modes based on music traditions. We still use Glarean mode names today.
