A selection of resources for a lesson or lessons about the poem Jabberwocky.

I ask students to find 10 nonsense words in the poem.

Use the planning sheet to help them design monster.

Write a description of their monster.

Write a story of poem about their monster using some words they have made up, or made up words from the poem. Here you may need to spend some time deciding what these words mean.

Finally an activity on non-fiction writing to support pupils to include titles, sub-titles, captions and to write in paragraphs. Use the example about Komodo dragons to spot these features. Use the information about Swordfish (easier) and Ichthyosaurus (harder as headings are not included and the information is not in order) or your own research to write your own non-fiction article about a real life monster.
