Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Activities Writing a Descriptive Paragraph of a Room in the Chocolate Factory Choose a room from the chocolate factory. Make a bubble map with all the descriptions and details of the room as it is described in the book. Use your five senses. Use the bubble map to write a paragraph (rough draft). The paragraph needs to be 6-10 sentences long. Have two students revise and edit your rough draft. Write the final copy of your descriptive paragraph. Illustrating a Room in the Chocolate Factory Use your descriptive paragraph of a room in the chocolate factory to illustrate the room. The title for your illustration will be the name of the room. Draw as many details as you can. Remember, use only the actual descriptions mentioned in the book. Don’t forget to color your illustration. Making a Character Sketch of Mr. Wonka Draw a picture of Willy Wonka according to the descriptions of him in the book. Make sure it’s colored. Around the picture, write down how Mr. Wonka looks, acts, feels, and what he says. Creating Your Own Candy You will write a paragraph about a candy that you will invent. Make sure you use your 5 senses to describe it. Include the recipe of your candy and how it is different from other candies. What does your candy enable the consumer to do? Draw a picture and color your new candy invention under your paragraph. Remember to give your candy a name. Creating a Board Game You will create your own board game of Mr. Wonka’s chocolate factory. Your game must include game pieces, cards that tell the players what to do, and the characters from the book. It must also have some of the rooms in the factory that are mentioned in the book. Your board game can be flat or 3-D. You also need to write the rules and directions of the game. After you finish creating your game, you need to find someone at home or at school to play with. After playing, write about how your game went. What was good about your game and what needs to be changed? Making a Diorama You will make a 3-D diorama of one of the rooms in the chocolate factory described in the book (e.g. The Chocolate Room, The Nut Room, The Inventing Room, etc.). Make sure to include as much of the details of the room as possible, as described in the book. Also include the characters, and show how one of the children got themselves into trouble in that particular room. Writing the Next Chapter Pretend that you are Roald Dahl and you want to add one more chapter at the end of the book. How would you continue the story? What happens to Charlie and his family? What will they do at the factory? Will they make any changes to the factory? Will they create new types of candy? Your chapter needs to be at least three pages long. You will need to illustrate your chapter as well.
