Now, Cast the Movie
In this activity students pretend that The Blue Sword is being made into a major motion picture and that they are the casting directors for the film. Working by themselves or in small groups, students decide what actors and actresses they would cast in each of the main and secondary roles.
Snapshots from the Novel: How Do You See It?
There are no pictures in The Blue Sword, but Robin McKinley writes some very vivid scenes. In this activity, your students will choose several of these scenes and illustrate them. Parts of this activity are done as a group while others are done individually.
