Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol
Week 4: Read chapters 10-End (pages 46-End)
1. Look up the definitions of the above vocabulary words in a dictionary. Find the definition that
most closely matches how each word is used in the book. Copy the definitions. Identify which
dictionary you used. Write sentences for each word that shows you know what it means.
Underline the vocabulary word in each sentence.
2. Answer the following questions in 2-3 sentences:
Chapter 10
Alice seems to go backwards a bit in this chapter and is relieved later when she can just listen to the
Mock Turtle’s Song. Although she is used to the nonsense of others by now, she is still having trouble
with her own jumbled thoughts and confusion. Give examples and reasons why.
Chapter 11
Why is the king relieved? What does this tell us about the relationship between the king and queen?
Did you notice that Alice had started to grow again? What do you think this means?
Did you notice how things return in this chapter? Make a list of five of these things:
Chapter 12
What characteristic of Alice’s is demonstrated here? Is it one she has always had?
How is Alice different here than earlier in the book? What does her attitude towards the king seem to
be? Why do you think that she does not show him more respect?
`Who cares for you?' said Alice, (she had grown to her full size by this time.) `You're nothing but a pack
of cards!' Why does this sentence seem to signal that Alice is ready to leave Wonderland?
What does the final paragraph tell us about what Carroll thought the point of his story was?
