The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis is a favorite novel study for students. Use this Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe fantasy literature unit to cover a wide range of reading skills.

My favorite activity in this product is the Narnia map activity. Students use the text to identify 9 key locations. Based on textual evidence, the students map Narnia and the route Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan followed while in Narnia. Students stain a piece of ledger sized paper with tea bags then create the "antique" map.

Other activities include a point of view journal where students re-tell each chapter from Edmund or Lucy's point of view and a final expository essay comparing Aslan and the White Witch.
