Lesson 1: Reading and Summarizing

Students begin to gain knowledge about the main characters of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, as well as the background of the story. Students will listen to a read aloud of Chapter 1 and work in groups to discuss the chapter, as well as the meaning of unfamiliar words or phrases that are specific to the text.

An audio recording of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is available here.
