The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Lesson Plan
Excerpt From this Document
By using this lesson plan, teachers will be able to successfully guide their students through C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Students will study the themes of heroism, forgiveness, and change/coming of age. Students will also trace the development of the Pevensie children through their adventures in Narnia using “The Hero’s Journey” developed by Joseph Campbell. Examples of guided discussion and study questions from this lesson plan include the following:
- How did Lucy end up in the wardrobe a second time in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe? While playing hide and seek Lucy went to have one more look into the wardrobe and then hide somewhere else. But she heard footsteps and jumped in to the wardrobe.
- Describe the White Witch from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. She was a tall lady covered in white fur up to her throat, holding a long golden wand in her right hand and wearing a golden crown. Her face was as pale as snow except for her very red mouth.
- How did all four of the Pevensie children end up in the wardrobe? They were trying to avoid being seen by the tour group, and since they heard noises right outside the door, they all hid in the wardrobe.
- What did the prophecy say about the future of Narnia? It said that when two Daughters of Eve and two Sons of Adam sit on the four thrones at Cair Paravel, winter would be over and peace would return to Narnia.
- Who was missing after the story of the prophecy was finished in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe? Edmund was missing as Mr. Beaver’s story ended.
