1. What challenges does Alice face and how does she overcome them?
Alice sees a door about fifteen inches high. She opens it with a golden key. She is unable to enter the doorway as she is too big. She drinks from the green bottle. Her size shrinks and she easily enters the garden. On eating a cake, Alice becomes larger than the house. Then she becomes small using a magical fan. In the end she eats a part of the mushroom and comes back to her normal size.
2. Have you ever had a strange dream? Share your dream in the class.
A few days back I fell asleep after a long walk. I had a fearful dream. I was swimming in the deep sea with my friends. All of a sudden my friends vanished. I heard some strange noise. A huge whale was coming close to me. I tried to get away from it. There was an octopus waving its tentacles fearfully. A giant crab moved fast towards me. I saw a long whip and I seized it to drive away the beasts. But the whip turned out to be a big sea snake. Immediately I let it go and screamed for help. Now my mother came there and roused me from sleep as I had to go to school. When I opened my eyes I realized that it was a terrible dream. How frightened I was!
Put students in pairs to role play a conversation between:
* Alice and her sister.
* Alice and White Rabbit.
It’s fun to help out in the kitchen. You can even practice reading aloud when reading the recipe. And you can learn a little math by figuring out how to measure. Here are a few fun items to make that are “Alice” themed.
In this recipe, you will create a salad shaped like a rabbit.
* Start by washing some lettuce leaves. You will be using them as the base for the salad. Spread the leaves on top of a plate.
* For the rabbit body: You will need half of a fresh or canned pear. If you have a whole pear, cut it in half lengthwise. This will be the body you will decorate.
* To create the rabbit’s nose: use a cherry or some red-coloured, dried fruit, like a cranberry. Place it in the middle of the narrow part of the pear.
* Now you can add the eyes. Take 2 raisins and put them just above the nose on the narrow part of the pear.
* Next, the rabbit will need its ears. Use 2 almonds or other nut of choice and stick them into the pear above the eyes.
* Lastly, all rabbits need a tail. Take a small piece of cauliflower and place it at the rear of the wide end of the pear half. For a sweeter version, use a mini marshmallow.
Learning About Nature
