The Magic Finger lesson plans

Three magic lesson plans for literacy, drama and PSHCE

Roald Dahl's The Magic Finger, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

Roald Dahl began work on The Magic Finger, originally called The Almost Ducks, in the early 1960s. It is a story that speaks very much of Roald's own strong feelings against animal cruelty. 

If you're studying themes from The Magic Finger with your class, here we have three lesson plans for literacy, drama and PSHCE. These plans will encourage your students to develop empathy, hold a debate, and develop a piece of creative writing about having magical powers.

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.

And stay tuned - we'll have more The Magic Finger lesson plans available very soon...

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