George’s Marvellous Medicine lesson plans

Create a class recipe book of outrageous new concoctions

Roald Dahl's George's Marvellous Medicine, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

George's Marvellous Medicine was published in 1981. In the story, George's "grizzly old grunion" of a Grandma gets her come-uppance when her grandson feeds her a very specially concoted medicinal brew...

If you fancy brewing up some potions in your own classroom (make sure they're safer than George's...) then this lesson plan is great for getting students involved in creating a recipe book of outrageous new concoctions.

Download the lesson plan using the panel on the right, 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.
