Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Book Review

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Lesson Plans and Fun Projects for Students blue bullet point Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a book that stands the test of time. Roald Dahl's story continues to capture the attention and imaginations of children today, as it did when it was first published in 1964.

blue bullet point This story features the adventures of a young and ordinary boy who wins the opportunity to tour a mysterious factory that is owned by an eccentric chocolate maker.

blue bullet point The hero of the story is Charlie Bucket, a poor child who lives with his parents and four grandparents in a little ramshackled house that is sparse, but filled with love. The family barely has enough money to buy food and they survive by eating bread, potatoes, and cabbage. Poor Charlie Bucket is practically starving to death, but his luck changes for the better when he wins a chance to visit Willy Wonka's fabulous, top-secret chocolate factory.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Roald Dahl Teaching Resources blue bullet point Instead of choosing adults or monsters as the antagonists, Roald Dahl has created four naughty, and memorable, children as the villains in this tale of good versus evil. In the end, the four bratty children are punished and receive exactly what they deserve.

blue bullet point Your students will enjoy rooting for Charlie Bucket during his many trials and tribulations. They will be captivated as they read about Charlie's amazing adventures in Willy Wonka's magical chocolate factory.

blue bullet point At the end of the story, your students will cheer when the hero emerges victorious and wins Willy Wonka's respect, as well as his scrumdiddlyumptious chocolate factory!

blue bullet point Children, teachers, and parents will certainly enjoy the moral of the story, that good behavior is always rewarded!

blue bullet point Roald Dahl's birthday is on September 13, so I enjoy beginning this novel study on the author's birthday.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Lesson Plans and Ideas blue bullet point All of the teaching resources on this page include a second version of each resource that contains British spelling rules (colour instead of color, favourite instead of favorite, etc).

Classroom Bulletin Board Display Example of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Projects

This Charlie and the Chocolate Factory group project display
is from Lisa's Grade 4 classroom in Connecticut.


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory First Draft Creative Writing Worksheets blue bullet point I believe that it is important for students to go through the steps of the writing process.

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin their Charlie and the Chocolate Factory group projects by writing on their final draft factory templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets.

blue bullet point Next, my students edit and revise their work together and I circulate around my classroom and provide assistance as needed.


blue bullet point This set of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory teaching resources contains four worksheets for students to write their first drafts on. On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces on the final draft factory templates.


Below are examples of the four first draft worksheets.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Roald Dahl Group Project Assembling Directions blue bullet point This set of Roald Dahl teaching resources includes step by step directions on how to assemble the 10 project templates together to form a large factory.

blue bullet point Depending on the age of your students, you could assemble these factory projects ahead of time for your students. Each factory takes me around 10 minutes to assemble myself.

blue bullet point Older students are able to assemble this large group project on their own. I have given my Grade 5 students the assembling directions worksheets (shown below), and they were able to assemble these large chocolate factory projects themselves.


Below is an example of the assembling directions worksheets.

blue bullet point This unique and fun group project for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory includes 10 printable worksheets with templates that assemble into a large factory.

blue bullet point When the project has been assembled, the finished chocolate factory measures 22 inches in width and 20 inches in height.

blue bullet point After students have described the main events that happened in the 4 factory rooms and have described Willy Wonka, Charlie Bucket, and the Oompa-Loompas, there is an area on each template for the group members to draw these events and characters.

blue bullet point Your students will love working on this large group project together and the finished chocolate factory group projects will make a dynamic and eye catching classroom or hallway display.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the group project grading rubric that is included in this set of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory teaching resources.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Group Project: Grading Rubric


blue bullet point When I am first introducing my students to a new project, I believe that it is important for them to have a visual example of what their final draft projects will look like. I always assemble the project myself beforehand and display it at the front of my classroom.

blue bullet point To save you time in coloring the chocolate factory project that you show to your students as an example, I have included color factory templates for you to use so that you do not have to spend time coloring these templates yourself.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Free Bulletin Board Display Banner and Teaching Resources blue bullet point I know that it takes teachers a lot of valuable time to assemble their bulletin board displays.

blue bullet point Many teachers spend hours of time cutting out large display letters or making a banner on their own at home on their computers.

blue bullet point This time is valuable and better spent on developing your classroom curriculum and grading papers, so I have designed two banners for your bulletin board display.

blue bullet point If you have access to a laminating machine, you can laminate these banners so that they are durable and you can use them year after year for bulletin board displays of your students' Charlie and the Chocolate Factory group projects.

Note: The above examples are from a variety of different Roald Dahl books.

Oompa Loompa Project Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Roald Dahl blue bullet point Your students will love creating large projects shaped like the characters from this book written by Roald Dahl.

blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to write about a character from a book is a task that most students find quite boring. By using these body shaped book report templates, your students will be enthusiastic about writing descriptions for these funny Roald Dahl characters.

blue bullet point The writing templates and graphic organizers that I have designed fit inside on the character's shirt and outside on the character's vest, arms, pants, or skirt.

The only additional material required to complete this project is construction paper.

blue bullet pointYou will be amazed at some of the creative ideas that your students come up with as they are individualizing their projects to represent their character's appearance, personality, and interests.

blue bullet point My students complete these fun projects prior to our Roald Dahl Day. On this day, my students dress up like their characters and share their projects in class.

blue bullet point This set of teaching resources for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory contains worksheet directions and printable templates to make character body book reports for Willy Wonka, Charlie Bucket, Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, Mike Teavee, Grandpa Joe, and an Oompa Loompa.

blue bullet point There are 8 individual sets of teaching resources, one for each character, and each set is individualized for that particular character.

1. Assembling Directions (2 Pages)

Willy Wonka Character Book Report Project Charlie and the Chocolate Factory blue bullet point This fun project contains directions on how to fold a piece of construction paper into a body shape (there are slightly different directions for male and female characters).

  • The character's body has a vest that opens up to show the shirt area, where students glue their longer writing sections.
  • On the outside of the vest, students glue the pocket, which contains the character's name.
  • There are 10 adjective boxes that are glued on the character's arms, pants, skirt, or legs.

blue bullet point This set of teaching resources includes 2 pages of detailed assembling directions that show students how to assemble this character project.

The other 7 characters' worksheets are not shown.


Main Characters Fun Book Report Projects for Roald Dahl Charlie Chocolate Factory blue bullet point It is impossible to tell you the measurements of this project because each student designs their own head, hands, legs, and feet for their characters.

blue bullet point Without these additional body parts, the main part of this project measures 18 inches in width and 12 inches in height. Students then add the head, hands, legs, and feet to this main body section.

blue bullet point Everything that you need to complete these character projects is included in this set of teaching resources. Your students will need scissors, glue, tape, coloring pencils, and construction paper to complete these projects.

blue bullet point For the main body section of this character project, each student will need a piece of construction paper that measures 12 inches x 18 inches. Students will also need construction paper to make the character's head, hands, and feet. In addition, my students often bring in yarn and fabric from home for their character's hair and clothes.

2. Directions For Gluing Templates Onto the Character's Body


Chocolate Bar blue bullet point Each set of character worksheets includes directions for how to glue the final draft templates onto the character's body.

blue bullet point Each set of gluing directions is slightly different due to the different writing topics for the 8 different characters. Below is an example of the directions for the Willy Wonka project.


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Willy Wonka Project Directions

Gluing Directions Worksheet For Willy Wonka Character Project
The other 7 characters' worksheets are not shown.

3. First Draft Writing Worksheets


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory First Draft Printable Worksheets blue bullet point I believe that the writing process is important and that teachers should use process writing whenever possible.

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin their Roald Dahl character projects by writing on their final draft character body templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Next, my students edit and revise their written work on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

blue bullet point This character body book report project is designed so that each writing section is glued onto the shirt and vest area of the character's body.

blue bullet point There are three different writing topics for each character. In addition, students have to select 10 adjectives that describe their characters.

blue bullet pointEach character's writing topics are slightly different.

blue bullet point Examples:

  • For Willy Wonka students describe his Chocolate Factory, the Golden Ticket Contest, and explain why Willy Wonka decided to give his Chocolate Factory to Charlie Bucket.
  • For Violet Beauregarde students describe The Nut Room and what happened to her in that room, how she won the 3rd Golden Ticket, and advice to Violet on how she can improve her attitude, behavior, and actions.

blue bullet point On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces allotted on the final draft character templates.

blue bullet pointEach set includes three pages of first draft writing worksheets. Below are examples of the first draft worksheets for the Willy Wonka character project.

4. Final Draft Creative Writing Templates


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Final Draft Character Project Templates blue bullet point Each character set includes three worksheets of final draft writing templates. After students have written their final drafts, they cut out these template pieces and glue them onto their character's body according to the directions worksheet.

blue bullet point These text boxes and templates for the 8 characters are all the same size, but the writing topics inside them are slightly different for each character.

blue bullet point Below are examples of the final draft templates for the Willy Wonka character project.

5. Grading and Evaluation Rubric

Grading Rubric For Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Project blue bullet point A grading rubric is included in this set of teaching resources. I believe that it is important for students to evaluate their own work, so this project contains an assessment section for both students and teachers.

blue bullet point When students evaluate their character projects, they color in the faces on their grading rubric worksheets. When a teacher evaluates the projects, the teacher circles the small numbers inside each box on the printable worksheets.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the grading rubric for the Willy Wonka character project.

Roald Dahl Ideas for Activities and Projects for The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

For this extra large giraffe group project, students work together to describe Billy, The Duke of Hampshire, and the three animals that make up the Ladderless Window Cleaning Company.

In addition to writing character descriptions, students write a 6 line rhyming poem in the same style that Roald Dahl uses throughout the story. There are also four areas on the giraffe templates for students to draw pictures that represent the characters and the poem that they wrote together.

Project Measurements:
36 x 21 inches
