The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe Unit Study

Welcome to day 5 of the 2012 ~ 10 Days of Homeschooling Blog Hop! This year my topic is 10 Days of Classic Literature. Over the 10 day series I will be sharing one unit study each day, for a total of 10 units you can go through with your students!

Psst….GIVEAWAY ALERT!…at the end of the blog hop I’ll be offering a Giveaway for the ENTIRE set of Classical Literature unit studies, so make sure to enter at the bottom of this post!

day5

 

Each of my Classical Literature unit studies contain educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the book. They also include book reports, vocabulary, critical thinking, story timelines, and comprehension. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well.

I really designed these units to be a fun addition to reading the classics. I didn’t want them to be too stressful for myself or my kiddos, but instead give them something fun to do along with the stories to help them remember what they’ve learned in a fun hands-on way. The lap books included are wonderful for reviewing subject matter, and a great creative interactive homeschooling tool.

And without any further ado…here is today’s unit:

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

coverpage

 

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis tells the tale of four adventurers as they discover a fantastical land called Narnia. The story begins during World War II when four siblings are evacuated from London to escape the Blitz. They are sent to live with Professor Kirke in the English countryside. There they discover a wardrobe that is actually a secret doorway to a magical world named Narnia. Adventure ensues when one of them is captured by power of the White Witch, but just when all hope is lost, the Great Lion Aslan returns! His appearance signals a great change….and a great sacrifice. This story is filled with fun and memorable  characters who display all kinds of character traits which make for wonderful discussions! Although it was written and published first, it is the second in a series of novels by C.S. Lewis called The Chronicles of Narnia.  The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was listed in Times 2005 list of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923, and has since been published in 47 foreign languages.

In this unit students will discuss character qualities, villains, heroes, courage, bravery, sacrifice, forgiveness. The study also includes vocabulary terms, a book report, and story predictions.

They will also get to sample a fun recipe for Turkish Delight!

The units also include forms for predicting story plots, character analysis, identifying the protagonist and antagonist, a story timeline, and a final book report on the novel.

  27. We’d love to win it! We have read theseries through once and while the Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe are brilliant, Monkey (age almost 7) preferred The Horse & His Boy and The Last Battle. When you have finished reading it there are two versions to watch. The 1988 BBC version and the the Disney version from a few years back. If you want to watch both, watch the BBC version first as it is truer to the book but the special effects are not as good (it was 1988 after all!) BBC did the entire series too. We prefer this version but the special effects from the Disney/Walden Pictures are pretty spectacular.

  28. What a great way to involve a whole family in literature!
