Ten Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lesson plans

Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, illustrated by Quentin Blake

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of Roald Dahl's best-known children's books, and in 2014 we're celebrating the incredible 50th anniversary of this much-loved story.

We have ten cross-curricular lesson plans to bring Willy Wonka’s world into your classroom and inspire any budding inventors and would-be chocolatiers.

Students can try a chocolate-melting scientific experiment, invent a new sweet, role play their own Oompa-Loompa scene, write poetry about their chocolate dreams - and lots more.

Download the lesson plans using the links in the panel and take a look at our other educational resources and ways to have fun with your class, from Dahlicious Dress Up Day to Puffin Virtually Live.

You can also plan a trip to the Roald Dahl Museum for your class - find out more here.
