Activity 3: What if...

An illustration of a man thinking, with his hand on his chin and a question mark above his head.
Part A: Return to your 3 favorite films and try reframing each of them in terms of a "what if" statement. Share these with someone (written or verbally) and see if they can guess what movie it is from!
Part B: Now it's your turn. Come up with 3-5 of your own “what if” ideas.
You can submit your ideas in the Tips & Thanks section below, or write them down in your story journal.
