Materials Needed:

  • Internet access

Everyone these days seems fascinated by royalty. We see headlines and hear conversations about different things that princes, kings, and queens have done or might do. There’s something about the idea of a king that makes people pay attention.

  • How would you describe a king? What would you say makes someone a king? (Answers may vary.)
  • Are there different kinds of kings? What are some examples of kings that aren’t part of the royal family? (Some possible answers: You could be the “king” of a particular type of music, a particular sport, or a genre such as mystery novels or comedy.)

The title of “king” can be common in sports, where a player who is particularly good at their sport or position will come to be called “the king.” In basketball, a player might be called the “king of the court” or “king of dunking” while in in baseball, a “home run king” is someone who is particularly good at hitting home runs. Famous football (American soccer) player Pelé has often been called the “king of football” because of his talent on the field.
