Project 146: A Wrinkle in Time

Unsurprisingly during the coronavirus we have done a lot more book projects (see our big list of books), and this week we decided on a classic we knew nothing about: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle.

It is a science fiction story of children tessering across the universe to save their father from the evil IT. Combining science with the age-old battle of good v. evil. 

The children read the graphic novel, and we read the original together. 

We watched the recent Disney version (2018):

And also the 2003 version:

We explored the themes of the book, and the differences between the book and the film using discussion points provided in the graphic novel, a teacher's guide at, and some activities on the BBC

Everyone enjoyed the story, so we've started reading the sequel A Wind in the Door

Next project: Sculpture
