Mannequin Challenge: ‘The Garbage King’ style!


Have you heard about the new craze: the mannequin challenge? Well, we took it and put our own spin on it! In the book we are currently studying in English (The Garbage King), a young boy called Mamo is sold to a depraved farmer, who treats him like dirt. We read the part where Mamo is almost beaten to death for allowing one of the farmer’s cows to die, and to incorporate the raw emotion that the author conveyed in her writing, we created our own ‘mannequin challenge’, whereby we froze at the point where the farmer is beating Mamo. In our hands you will see an adjective; this is how we think Mamo was feeling at this point.

We hope you enjoy our video! (Click the link above ‘GK VIDEO’ to view it)
