Product Description

Have straight-from-the-story fun with The LitWits Kit for JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH by Jules Verne - LITWITSThe LitWits Kit for Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne

This isn’t a study guide — it’s an experience kit! 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 virtual products, but they’re packed with downloadables — templates, activity aids, academic handouts, and more. Because our kits live online, we can link you to useful info and audiovisuals. And you’ll always have the very latest updates!

The LitWits Kit for Journey to the Center of the Earth 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

JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH by Jules Verne - LITWITS -Hansbach water label activity

Sign up to get our Hansbach Springs labels!

Quench your kids’ thirst for excellent books as they travel to the planet’s core! A fun logo and a few words, and voila, tap water turns into fancy H2O.

“Nothing could be better for the digestion,” said my uncle. “It is highly impregnated with iron. It will be as good for us as going to the Spa, or to Töplitz.”

“Well, it is delicious!”

“Of course it is, water should be, found six miles underground. It has an inky flavour, which is not at all unpleasant. What a capital source of strength Hans has found for us here. We will call it after his name.”

“Agreed,” I cried.

And Hansbach it was from that moment.  – Ch. 23

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.
