Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Class Projects

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Drawing

The characters of Charlie drawn by my learners. Thanks to the folks back home for sending me crayons and markers – they were used for this project!

After I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with my Grade 8 English Class, I divided the learners into groups and had them decide to either draw, write, sing or act out a part of Charlie. I was pretty impressed with the results. One group rapped, one wrote a new ending for the story, another group had the great drawing shown above, and three girls wrote their own song.

Here are the lyrics of the song in the video above.

The Charlie Song
By Selena Alagoa, Uasora Puje and Tessy Muremi

Whoever thought that he
would see Willy….
He made delicious things
to eat everyday

We never thought that
He would win the prize…
Little Charlie had always behaved…

(chorus)

Welcome to the Factory…
Ooo of Charlie (ooh)
Ooo Factory…

Welcome to the Factory…
Ooo of Charlie (ooh)
Ooo Factory…

Augustus Gloop
Veruca Salt
They never behaved
But little Charlie always kept quiet
Mike Teavee
The TV freak that never listens to his parents

We never thought it would
turn into one big mess
