Product Description
This is my complete offering for the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland also known as Alice in Wonderland. It contains both my Alice based logic unit and my Alice chapter comprehension questions worksheet collection. Buy this to get both of them cheaper than if you buy them separately. If you would also like the comprehension questions for this book's sequel, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, buy my Complete Wonderland and Looking-Glass Comprehension and Logic Combo instead of this one.

Logic Unit Description:
This is a collection of worksheets and tests that work for a month long introduction to formal logic and fallacies. There are 7 worksheets introducing formal logic with syllogisms and correct use of Venn diagrams in determining validity. Then there are 11 worksheets on logical fallacies. Finally there are two tests and an answer key for each of the tests.

The formal logic section uses ideas from the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland book in the examples. The logical fallacy section features passages from the book illustrating each fallacy. Lewis Carroll was a master logician and loved to play with logic within his books. Thus, introductory training in logic helps a reader to more fully appreciate his works.

The worksheets are meant to give students practice with beginning logic concepts, as well as the logical fallacies found within Alice in Wonderland. If you as the teacher aren't familiar with the subject of beginning formal logic it might be difficult to understand the few Venn Diagramming pages at the end of the formal logic section in this packet. However, there are a lot of great 15 to 20 minute videos on YouTube teaching this entire concept that you can watch to quickly grasp the process. I have a couple of links on those pages to a webpage and video that will give you the background you need, If you've never seen Venn Diagrams used for the purpose that they were originally intended for, it is quite fascinating and fun. The logical fallacies from the Alice in Wonderland book will probably be understandable to any teacher from the worksheets alone regardless of previous training.

This unit takes me a month to teach. I have done this with Gifted 5th grade and middle school classes.
