Describe a Dream
In Episode 8, Carmen has a nightmare about failing Shadowsan’s exam. Kids show their understanding of Carmen’s crew and other characters by imagining what they might have nightmares about.
- The episode begins with Carmen’s nightmare about failing Shadowsan’s exam. Have kids work in pairs to imagine and describe a nightmare that one of the other characters may have.
- Place kids in pairs.
- Have kids choose a character that they would like to work with.
- Based on their knowledge of the character, kids write a very short nightmare scene that illustrates aspects of the character, such as particular events, likes/dislikes, personality type, character strengths or flaws, etc.
- Kids illustrate or find images to accompany their writing.
