The Witches lesson plans

With this lesson plan, students become witch-detectives...

Roald Dahl's The Witches, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

The Witches was published in 1983. In that year, it won Roald Dahl The New York Times Outstanding Books Award, The Federation of Children's Book Groups Award and The Whitbread Award. 

In this witchy lesson plan, your students become detectives, just like the boy and his grandmother in the original story on the trail of the Grand High Witch...

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 Witches lesson plans available very soon...

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