While you read Charlotte's Web, were you reminded of a special friendship you have with someone? How does your friendship compare with Wilbur's and Charlotte's? What have you learned from this classic story? Gather your thoughts together with this special project!

Welcome to the final lesson in the Charlotte's Web series!

In the last Related Lesson, found in the right-hand sidebar, you learned about the author who wrote this endearing classic. Tell your teacher two facts you remember about E.B. White.

Great! You will need to use that information later in the lesson. Take a few moments to share your favorite part of Charlotte's Web with your parent or teacher.

Charlotte's Web introduces many beloved characters you will remember for years to come.

  • Wilbur was a lucky pig who started his life as the runt of the litter and quickly found a special place in Fern's heart. 
  • The characters unite to save Wilbur from an untimely death and form close friendships in the process. 
  • Would you consider Templeton to be a friend of Wilbur's? Why or why not? Share your thoughts with your parent or teacher. 

In the Got It? section, you will complete an activity to summarize the book and check your comprehension. Before you move on to the next section, review the notes you kept in your notebook. This will help prepare you for the next activity.
