Charlotte's Web Enrichment Activities

Charlotte's Web

Use these creative enrichment project ideas while reading Charlotte's Web.

  • Alpha Squares

    Make a large grid with 24 boxes. Write a letter of the alphabet in each box, in ABC order. (Put XYZ in one box) In small groups or with the whole class, reflect on the story, Charlotte's Web. Try to think of a word or phrase that begins with each letter. You might name characters, events, objects, or any word related to the story. See if you can get a word for all 26 letters. Have students illustrate each box.

  • A Barnyard Model

    Create a barnyard setting of all of the animals in the book. Use a variety of materials such as cardboard, wood pieces, boxes, construction paper, etc. Don't forget Wilbur's trough! Make the animals from modeling clay or add some plastic farm animals.

  • Memorial to Charlotte

    Have students plan a memorial service for Charlotte.Think of ways to celebrate her life. How would she like to be remembered? You could sing a spider song ("Eensy, Weensy, Spider"), write a spider poem, have the children write memorial tributes to Charlotte, etc.

  • Weave a Web

    Students can design a web using straws or craft sticks. Cross them so there are six spokes. Use yarn to spin a web in and out and around the sticks. The longer the spokes, the bigger the web will be. Make a spider out of pipe cleaners and add a few bugs to the web. If you feel really clever, try writing a message like: "SOME PIG!"
