The LitWits Explorer’s Guide for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Everything in this “experience guide” comes from our unique sensory workshop on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. When kids see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and DO what the characters did, they understand more. Better yet, they want to read more.
LitWits Explorer’s Guides are web pages packed with downloadables—templates, activity aids, academic handouts, and more. (Here’s a sample, for a different book.) Because our guides live online, we can link you to useful info and audiovisuals. And you’ll always have the very latest updates! A PDF version is included for easy printing.
The LitWits Explorer’s Guide for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 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

This guide 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.
