WHErE In THE World Is CarTEr KanE?
In the opening chapter of The Red Pyramid, Carter offers readers an opportunity to be introduced to some of the important characters in the story as well as the landscape in which the story takes place.
In this activity, consider the story’s initial setting by listening to the audio sampler from The Red Pyramid enclosed in this kit. As you listen, have guests mark the London map they’ve been provided with as a way to better understand the story’s setting.
A map of London with notable landmarks
(develop on Google Earth or Google Maps)
Provide each guest with a map of London and a highlighter.
Play the CD sampler of Chapter 1 of The Red Pyramid.
Each time a London landmark is mentioned, highlight it.
After listening, lead a discussion about the significance of these places (or objects) to the city of London and the story.
Give listeners the opportunity to predict other places around the world that may come into play in the story!
optional: Consider playing the CD sampler in its entirely first, allowing your guests to simply listen. After hearing it once, distribute the maps and follow the directions above.
