"There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the ordinary to hear the Rabbit say to itself 'Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!' ...but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice startled to her feet."
Discuss with the class or a small group these questions.
What do you think is behind the door?
Should Alice open the door?
What do you think would happen if Alice didn't open the door?
Draw a door on one side of paper. Glue the left side of the door onto another piece of paper so that it will open and close like a door. Draw the world Alice goes into on the other piece of paper.
"It was all very well to say "Drink Me" but the wise little Alice wasn't going to do that in a hurry. "No I will look first," she said and see wether it is marked "poison" or not; for she had read several nice little histories about children who got burnt , and eaten up by wild beasts and other unpleasant things, all because they would not remember the simple rules their friends had taught them: such as that a red hot poker will burn you if you hold it too long: and that if you cut your finger very deeply with a knife, it usually bleeds, and she had never forgotten that, if you drink from a bottle marked "poison" it is almost certain to disagree with you sooner or later."
1. Discuss these questions with your class or a small group.
Why did the rabbit run away?

1. This is a different picture of the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. Which picture do you prefer? Why?
2. What do you know about rabbits? Write down three facts about rabbits. If you can't think of three on your own, talk to your friends and see if they can tell you something interesting about rabbits.
This is the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. He is famous for his big cheesy grin. Draw a picture of yourself with a large "Cheshire Cat' smile.
What would it be like to have the Cheshire Cat as a pet? Where would he sleep? What would he eat? What games would he play?
1. Design an invitation to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Remember to include who the invitation is for, when the party is and where the party is.
2. Design a hat to wear at the tea party. You can make a drawing of the hat or create one out of cardboard. Make sure it is over-the-top and a little bit crazy.
