Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Lesson Plans by Elizabeth Pedro

Alice is bored, lazily sitting with her sister on the riverbank when all of a sudden, a white rabbit in a waistcoat rushes by. Alice follows the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole and feels herself falling for quite a long time. When she finally lands, she spots the White Rabbit again, but as she turns the corner, Alice finds herself trapped in a dark hallway. She longs to get out into the garden, but she is much too large. Cautiously, Alice begins drinking a bottle labeled “DRINK ME” and she begins shrinking down to the size of the tiny door.
