Activity Overview


A Wrinkle in Time explores many abstract concepts about freedom, individuality, and choice. These themes are applied both to the individual characters and to entire societies and governmental structures. Students can better understand the importance of these ideas and connect with the text by exploring these concepts in their own lives and the world around them.

For this activity, ask students to compare and contrast important concepts by illustrating them with storyboard examples. The examples may be drawn from personal experience, from history, or from the novel.


Suggested Concepts

  • Like vs. Equal
  • Fate vs. Free Will
  • Utopia vs. Dystopia
