If you only do one thing
If you are pressed for time but would like to do an activity inspired by the Artemis Fowl series, why not try the following creative exercise with your class?
Design a 'wanted' poster for Artemis Fowl LIT 2-16a, ENG 2-19a, LIT 2-20a, ENG 2-31a
This poster needs to capture the attention of all Haven citizens and encourage them to help capture Artemis. As a class or in groups ask pupils to think carefully about the following:
- What do they know about Artemis – his age and appearance, etc.
- The reasons for wanting him captured.
- Whether they would want him captured dead or alive and their reasons for this.
- An appropriate reward and why they have chosen this.
