Activity Overview


In this activity, students will compare and contrast Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with another text they have read. In this example, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is being compared with The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.


  1. The first point of contrast is that of wealth and family; Charlie Bucket lives in extreme poverty, but has a loving family, while Huckleberry Finn has reward money, but lacks a family.
  2. The second contrast is the setting; Charlie adventure is a visit to Wonka’s magical factory with many mysterious inventions and peculiar oompa-loompas. Huck’s adventures are aboard a raft and filled with real danger.
  3. A commonality to compare between the stories are Charlie and Huck as characters; they are both good boys who receive a reward in the end. Charlie wins shelter and a lifetime supply of food, and Huck is adopted by Tom Sawyer’s family.
