About the story

When little Alice falls down a rabbit hole, she finds herself in a bizarre Wonderland of strange creatures and situations. She shrinks and expands without warning, nearly drowns in a pool of her tears, and plays croquet using a flamingo mallet. She also meets a grinning cat, a hair-raising queen, a mad hatter, a mock turtle, and a smoking caterpillar—to name just a few. What’s it all about? Imagination, of course—but there’s more to this “literary nonsense.” Just like kids’ adventures in real life, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland help her work through awkwardness, confusion, and sadness to get where she’s going.

About the LitWits Kit

Experience Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with your students in hands-on, meaningful ways! Your kids can paint roses red, send Alice down (and up) the rabbit hole, shrink and expand on demand, rewrite some classic poetry, make sense of nonsense,  get punny, learn what else the brilliant Lewis Carroll did, and SO much more!

This lesson planning resource is ideal for ages 8-12, but it’s highly adaptable. Scroll down to get more details and a free idea with template.

Product Description

The LitWits Kit for ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND by Lewis Carroll - montage projects activities lessons worksheetsThe LitWits Kit for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Everything in this “experience kit” comes from our unique sensory workshops on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It’s packed with hands-on ways to get into the characters’ shoes. When kids see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and DO what the characters did, they understand more. Better yet, they want to read more.

LitWits Kits are web pages packed with downloadables—templates, activity aids, academic handouts, and more. (Here’s a sample, for a different book.) Because our kits live online, we can link you to useful info and audiovisuals. And you’ll always have the very latest updates! Each kit includes a PDF version, too.

The LitWits Kit for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland includes:

  • sensory prop suggestions, with photos
  • creative project and activity ideas, with photos
  • printable templates, excerpts, and activity prompts
  • takeaway topics, to fuel meaningful conversations
  • printable handouts for creative writing, the narrative arc, setting, and more
  • research and audiovisual links, for one-stop prep and homework help
  • great quotes from the book, where copyright allows
  • a PDF version, for clean and easy printing

Ages/Grades
This kit is adaptable to a wide range of ages. (See the Ways to Use tab for classroom and homeschool uses.) We find 8-12-year-olds consistently “ready to LitWit,” but you know best what your kids are ready for, interested in, and capable of.

We’ll send you our Setting Notes template, with a page of teacher tips. It’s a fun, sensory way to explore a story’s setting!

Here are a few options for classroom teachers and homeschoolers. Decide what works best for your classroom or family!

Pull projects, activities, and handouts as needed to stimulate interest, reinforce a concept, or take a break from reading.

Use a suggested prop to trigger a conversation. Ask your kids if they know what the item is, and why it’s significant in the story. You might discover a theme together!

Casually bring up a question from a handout at recess or over dinner, and let the discussion grow from there. Take advantage of tangential learning opportunities!

Do the projects and activities as the book is being read, or after as a reward.

Use one or more prop ideas to support specific learning goals, such as spelling or social studies.

Have your kids research a particular prop in more depth – learn its history and usage, and write a report.

Enjoy the arts and crafts projects as a family or in an after-care group.

Set up the book display in the classroom or living room, and invite your kids to contribute their own story-related items each day.
