In chapter two of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Lucy visits Mr. Tumnus’ home. Follow the directions to learn how C.S. Lewis used adjectives to describe the home and to make the passage interesting.
In this lesson, students read the passage, highlight the nouns, and identify the adjectives used to describe the nouns. Students explore why Lewis used those adjectives and alternative choices he may have used. Students also compare the description of the cave in chapter two to the description in chapter six. They then write a passage using adjectives that clearly describe a place.
