I AM BEOWULFis an interactive review activity of the epic poem Beowulf that is adapted from Captain’s Orders game.
The Narrator stands at the front of the designated play space. All other players line up single file, facing the Narrator. The narrator introduces the various commands and actions to be used in the game. When ready, the narrator calls out a command. The players do the action associated with the command. Play continues with the narrator calling and the ‘crew’ responding. The faster the actions are called and performed, the trickier (and funnier) the game becomes.
