How do you convince someone you are telling the truth, expecially when lie detectors and cameras haven't yet been invented? What logic does the professor use to argue that Lucy may be telling the truth?

The professor points out that Lucy does not lie, and her story has not been proved to be untrue.

Edmund traveled with Lucy to Narnia, and he was taken by the White Witch. She feeds Edmund Turkish Delights and promises him the honor of king. Why, in your opinion, does the White Witch have such an interest in capturing the four children? Share your ideas with your parent or teacher.

The way you view a situation can determine how you react in the situation. As you read the next three chapters, you will notice the children each have a different point of view regarding the events in Narnia. This point of view also helps determine the motivation behind each character's actions.

  • What do you think Edmund's point of view is, based on what you have read so far?
  • How will this affect his actions?
  • Share your ideas with your parent or teacher.
  • As you read Chapters 6 through 8, note what motivates each child's actions and why you think they make these decisions.
