Lending Library – Booktube Project

Watch the following booktubes.

As you can see a booktube is a review of a certain book.

Notice that first children mention the title and author of the book and then they carry out a task. Choose among one of these:

1. Describe the main characters. Then, think if you were a movie director which famous actor/actress you would choose to perform those roles if the book was turned into a movie. Give reasons.

2. Think of the ending of the story and change it in a radical way.

3. Look at the cover of the book and explain whether you believe it is a good cover or not. Draw a new one and expand on your choices.

4. Choose one of the secondary characters and retell the story from his/her point of view.

Some final tips before you record your booktube.

a. Read your book.
b. Choose the activity that you will be developing.
c. Write an outline of your booktube.
d. Practice your booktube in a loud voice, check that it is not too short or too long.
e. Have any visuals you might need to use at hand.

Aboard the ship Revenge, your duty lies today
against the King of Spain, we free men have our say.
Elizabeth our regal Queen, has summoned us to fight
and we shall be victorious, before the fall of night.

We fight for god and country, for England and our Queen.
