The flying, crowing, strutting figure of Peter Pan is known to kids of all ages, but how much do we really know? In this lesson, your class will use the Peter Pan and Neverland workbook to take a closer look at Peter and his world.
Students will be able to write an opinion piece with supporting points and clear and appropriate organization. Students will be able to determine the meaning of words and phrases as they read excerpts from Peter Pan. Students will be able to interpret the figurative language of Peter Pan in the excerpts provided.
Tell students that today they will be introduced to Peter Pan and the idea of never growing up.
Activate their prior knowledge and ideas with a few short questions. Examples of these questions are: Can anyone tell me who Peter Pan is? Why is Peter Pan so special? Why might someone want to stay a child forever?
