Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


The girls were given very difficult homework! ;-)) They had to read the book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"  by Roald Dahl and then go to the movie of the same name.  They worked in pairs. After their movie visit, they discussed the similarities and differences between the book and the movie. They looked at online Venn diagram makers  and made rough notes and diagrams on paper. They then used a Kidspiration Venn diagram template  to compare the book and the movie (using different aspects such as similarities and differences within characters (e.g. Charlie and Veruca), the plot, places, temperament, family structure).

Finally they had to save their work in the school's shared drive for me to take home on flash disk and assess. Throughout the project they enjoyed the games and chocolate online links and games  provided by Susan Silverman and Marci MacGowan. Thank you ladies for another fantastic project!
