LitWits brings great books to life in sensory ways, so kids will want to read more!
ACTIVITY IDEAS from the LitWits experience:
We departed the Reform Club (with the appropriate demeanor) and followed Phileas Fogg around the globe — not in eighty days, but eighty minutes! We had to manage our time precisely, but we still got our passports stamped in every port, learned a bit of every country’s language, picked up some geography facts, had a Singaporean snack, performed in a Long-Nose acrobatic troupe, and still had time to rescue widows in distress. And so much more!
Want YOUR students to have meaningful fun with Around the World in Eighty Days? The LitWits Kit is coming soon! Includes project, activity and prop ideas, takeaway topics, and printables with keys. Sign up to find out when it’s available (and you’ll get a free gift!).
