You may have already read A Wrinkle in Time book when you were younger or with your kids (or maybe have even seen A Wrinkle in Time original movie).

A Wrinkle in Time book (AFFILIATE)Weren’t they fantastic?

I’m bringing it up because both A Wrinkle in Time film and the book are  great to incorporate into your lessons. (And, you know I’m a big fan of creating a teaching theme with movies and books together!)

So, whenever a movie comes out based on a family book, my brain goes into overdrive trying to figure out fun project ideas, art projects, theme lessons, and lesson plans to incorporate into our learning! (Yes, it is exhausting and time-consuming, but lucky for you I’ve done all the leg work so you just need to pick out what study unit or project works for you!)

A Wrinkle in Time Summary

In case you aren’t familiar with the book (or movie), A Wrinkle in Time is about science fiction time travel by “wrinkling time” to save a scientist stuck on another planet.

A Wrinkle in Time characters Meg Murry, her brother Charles Wallace, and friend Calvin O’Keefe travel through time to rescue Meg’s scientist father who is being held on another planet by some evil forces.
