Product Description
This chart provides a way for students to organize their observations about the movie version of the Newbery-award winning novel A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle.

Rather than "just watching a movie," students will be able to analyze it effectively by comparing and contrasting it with the novel. As a graphic organizer, this chart heightens the students' attentive responses and improves their awareness of how Earth's battle against the Dark Thing in A Wrinkle in Time can be presented through different media.

The film for A Wrinkle in Time (2004) is available on DVD at and elsewhere. It runs for 128 minutes.
