LC: To find the conventions of a fantasy story.

The Snow Queen is a fantasy story. 

In order for a story to belong to the fantasy genre, it must have many of the following features: 


1. Magic

(having the power of mysterious forces)

2. Adventure

(questing heroes or a child falling down a magic rabbit hole)

3. Conflict

(good versus evil with good and bad characters)

4. Real world versus fantasy 

(There is usually a way in and out of the fantasy world like a portal.) 

5. Place/setting is built on magic

(imaginary world)

6. Possibly talking animals


Using the below table, collect evidence of each feature found in the Snow Queen text.
