Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

Lesson Plans by Heidi Deck

Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White is the classic story of Wilbur the pig. Born the runt of the litter, Wilbur’s is doomed until eight-year-old Fern Arable stands up for him, and insists that he shouldn't be killed. Fern names the runt Wilbur, and they are inseparable until Wilbur is too big to live in their home. His most cherished friend is Charlotte the spider, who quickly develops a strong bond with Wilbur. Their friendship, and Charlotte’s devotion to Wilbur, will save his life. This touching story will capture the hearts of school aged children for years to come.
