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 www.madeleinelengle.com, 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
