Alice in Wonderland was one of my favorite books and movies as a little girl. I loved watching the animated version over and over. And if I remember correctly, we did a version of it for our dance recital one year. It was like heaven combining my love of the movie with my dance world.

Falling down a rabbit hole isn’t my idea of a fun day. However, I’m pretty sure even I couldn’t resist following a white rabbit holding a pocket watch! As a kid, I always dreamed of being one of those cartoons and living in the make-believe world I saw on the screen. And Alice had one of the best!

Alice in Wonderland is a classic and a favorite movie for many children (and adults). Now you can add a little fun to your next movie night with this movie study! This is geared toward elementary ages, but could easily be adapted for middle schoolers too. #AliceinWonderland #moviestudy #movies #iaydhomeschoolers #iaydhsmoms

Alice met so many fascinating creatures and people on her journey. And yet, even though I knew the outcome, I always wondered what would’ve happened if she hadn’t drank that potion or eaten the cookie or she realized what the Cheshire Cat was up to and wasn’t caught by the Queen. Didn’t you love to hate her? 

I don’t know if it is nostalgia or simply because they are simply fantastic, but these old classics are still among my favorite movies. Today we have a brand new movie study based on the original 1951 film produced by Disney. I can’t wait to use this one with my own kids and I hope you all love it too!

Discussion Questions

Discussion Questions are a great way to help kids work on their comprehension skills. They are also a great starting point for a paper. The answers can be the points for an outline or to help them write a simple summary of the movie. 

The discussion questions are great for kids of all ages. You can ask them in a group format or give each child a copy of the questions and have them write out their answers on their own paper . Giving them their own paper sneaks in a little handwriting and spelling practice too!

Character Analysis

This page has room to analyze six different characters – The White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, Mad Hatter, the Flowers, and the Queen of Hearts. Students are to describe each with character traits and examples. This is a great exercise to help them look deeper at the characters and as a great prep for descriptive essays.

Compare & Contrast

There are several different versions of Alice in Wonderland that gives students some great options for a compare/contrast exercise. They can compare the book and movie, two different movies, the original 1951 movie with the newer live version (2010). This sheet gives them room to do a sort of venn diagram exercise with a different format.
