A Wrinkle in Time

Activity # 1: (ART) Illustrate the three witches -- Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which, and Mrs. Whatsit. In order to characterize your illustration, include five quotes from the book that reveal their behaviors, personalities, physical appearances, and other unique qualities.

Activity #2: (WRITING/ART) Create an inter-galactic travel brochure that describes one of Meg, Charles and Calvin's destinations in the novel (Uriel, Camazotz, or Earth). Keep in mind that travel brochures are marketing devices, so point out and play up the destination's positive features. Include carefully placed and designed illustrations.

Activity #3: (WRITING) According to this novel, Earth has been affected by the Black Thing - a negative supernatural force. In a short paper, examine a problem you think Earth has that might be related to this negative force. Explain how humans might be able to attack and eventually solve this problem.
