The Runaway King Character Challenge

Hello Fantasy Lovers,

This week marked one of our final AFFL meetings (I’m sorry that still makes me giggle…AFFL (awful) meetings) and we celebrated with a student created Runaway King themed activity.  A few meetings ago we brainstormed some ideas of what we could do with The Runaway King by Jennifer Nielsen.  We finalized one creating and playing Queen’s Cross and this our Character Challenge.

In the Character Challenge each member was assigned, secretly, a main character in The Runaway King.  We then had to come up with some way to display the character to the rest of the AFFL members and see if they could guess our character.  It has been many weeks to months since most of us finished that story, so I was mightily impressed with the acting and guessing of our AFFL members.

Check out our videos, broken into two chapters.

It was a lot of fun to think about character and how to get guessing friends to come up with your character’s name.  This is a game you could play with any story.  Pick a book and find some friends and try your own character challenge.

Read on,

Mr. H

  1. We should do this again with other books, but Carly it was kinda rude that you continually said yours was the only ordinary one.
