Pupils could watch the clip and tell a partner in their own words what they think the story is about. They could think of situations where turning everything to gold is good and bad and discuss them with a partner. Pupils could choose a good and a bad outcome from the clip and draw a picture about it. Pupils could cut up some shapes to represent Midas and fill them with any words to describe him and the way he behaves in the clip.
