A Wrinkle in Time Activities

A Wrinkle in Time

From the first line of the book . . . “It was a dark and stormy night,” until the last line. . . “But they never learned what it was that Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which had to do, for there was a gust of wind, and they were gone,” A Wrinkle in Time is an exciting story.

In this book three children, Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin, go on a rescue mission to save Meg and Charles Wallace’s father from the Darkness that has trapped him. The children are helped by three witches, Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatist, and Mrs. Which who provide gentle advice through thoughtful quotes:

  • Life, with its rules, its obligations, and its freedoms, is like a sonnet: You’re given the form, but you have to write the sonnet yourself. – Mrs. Whatsit

  • It was really a very great honor for me to be chosen for this mission. It’s just because of my verbalizing and materializing so well, you know. But of course we can’t take any credit for our talents. – Mrs. Whatsit

  • I do not know everything; still many things I understand. – Mrs. Who
