In this activity, students will choose a character who plays a key role in the plot development. This example reveals how King Midas was very greedy at the beginning of the story; he cared more about his gold than his daughter, Marigold. Even though the King had more gold than anyone else, he still wanted more, and he was delighted when the fairy gave him the power to change everything he touched into gold. King Midas begins to worry when he cannot eat or drink. The worry becomes panic when he turns his own daughter into a golden statue. In the end, King Midas learns his lesson and begs the fairy to bring his daughter back. The King runs to the spring to collect the water that will reverse what he has done.
