Information on Lewis Carroll By Kelly and Nicola

Lewis Carroll was born on January 27th, 1832 in Daresubury, Cheshire. His real name is Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Alice in Wonderland was one of his many stories, he also wrote poems. He is the eldest boy in his family of 11. Lewis Studied at many schools before he became a lecturer at Oxford University. Alice in Wonderland was first told to the Dean sisters. Alice, who was the youngest of the sisters, begged Lewis to publish the book when he first told them the story. “Alice in Wonderland” is based on the youngest of the sisters, Alice. The book was published in 1865 and then became one of the most popular books of all time. He also wrote ‘Through the Looking Glass’ which was published in 1871. He also published his first book of poems in 1869. Today, there are many movies based on the story, Alice in Wonderland. The Alice in Wonderland illustrations were done by John Tenniel. Lewis had seven sisters and three brothers, he was the eldest son in his family. His mother (Frances Jane Lutwidge Dodgson) died in 1851 and his father (Charles Dodgson) died in 1868. Lewis told many stories to his siblings, which is where he got inspiration and practice from telling his stories.


His family lived in a outback village in the UK. The family had few friends meaning Lewis often told stories, he also made up games for him and his siblings to play with. Lewis Carroll’s first attended Richmond School, Yorkshire in (1844-45). He showed great mathematical skills. Then in 1846-1850, he attended Rugby School. He had multiple illnesses at that time which left him deaf in one ear. After Rugby School, his father tutored him and yet again he showed great mathematical skills to his father. Lewis then went to Oxford University. Lewis Carroll had many books, poems and stories. He died January 14th 1898 in Guildford UK. Lewis was also a photographer Photographer of children and adults.

Extinct animal The Dodo bird was featured in Alice In Wonderland. The Dodo Bird is related to pigeons but is the size of a turkey. The bird has been extinct for over 350 years . The last sighting of the bird was in 1681. The bird is flightless and lived on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. The Dodo bird had gray feathers and white feathers on its chest and tail. In 1500 portuguese were the first people to land on the island of Mauritius. The island became a port for spice and hungry sailors often killed Dodo birds for food.


Dodo bird

In the 1500s the Portuguese sailors brought pigs and monkey onto the island where the Dodo bird lived. The pigs and monkeys killed all Dodo birds children. The Dodo bird had no pretors until humans came to the island.Solitaires, birds related to the dodo, lived on the nearby islands of Runion and Rodriguez. By 1800 they, too, had become extinct. The Dodo Bird is an amazing animal and will always be remembered.

5 facts on the Dodo Bird 1. It might be possible to bring the bird back from extinction. 2. The Dodo Bird didn’t taste very nice. 3. The closest relative to a Dodo Bird is a Nicobar pigeon. 4. In Alice In Wonderland the Dodo Bird is wise but in real life the bird is considered slow and not bright. 5. Could weigh up to 14kg and the bird is harm less.


This recipe was created by Ella Walsh for Kidspot, Australia’s

How to make In the book Alice In Wonderland, Alice falls down the rabbit hole and finds and empty marmalade jar. With this orange marmalade recipe you can fill the empty jar Alice has. Narmalade is a delicious tangy spread to have on your toast for breakfast. Perfect for gifts this marmalade makes 1.5 lites of marmalade. Ingredients: • • • •

600g (approx. 6-8) small oranges, halved 1 lemon, juiced 1.4 l water 1.1kg caster sugar

Nethod: Before you begin making the marmalade, sterilize your jars. To do this, place the clean jar in a large saucepan. Cover the jars with cold water and bring them up to the boil. Allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes then remove the jars from the water with tongs. Set aside upside down to dry. Scoop the flesh, juice and pips out of the orange halves with a metal spoon and whiz in a food processor until smooth. Remove as much of the pith from the orange halves as possible and throw away. Then carefully slice the remaining rind into very thin strips. Tip the orange puree and the orange rind strips into a heavy-based saucepan. Add the lemon juice and water then bring the pan to the boil. Reduce the heat to a slow simmer and allow to cook for 1-1 ½ hours until the mixture has reduced by half and the rind is very soft. Over a low heat, add the sugar and stir it through until it is dissolved.


orange marmalade Boil the marmalade for 10 minutes. Skim any froth that appears off the surface. To check if the mixture is ready, take a teaspoon of the marmalade from the pan and place on a cold plate in the fridge – if it sets to a jelly, it is ready.

If it doesn’t, it still needs a little more cooking. Test again in another 5-10 minutes. Once ready, take the pan off the heat and allow to cool a little before pouring into the sterilized jars and sealing. Tips: Taking the time to sterilize the jars properly is important, as your • marmalade can go moldy in the jar if you don’t. When scooping out the orange flesh, be sure not to scoop • out the pith as well. The white pith will make the marmalade bitter. If you want very clear marmalade, you could sieve the orange • mixture once you’ve put it through the food processor to catch any little lumps – personally, I can’t be bothered! There is something extremely satisfying about making your • own jam and marmalade – it is much easier than most people think! And it makes a lovely gift too.

Science Fun:

Invisible Ink

The Cheshire Cat keeps dissapearing so now you can make words disappear to........

Invisible Ink the Baking Soda Way

Mix about 1/4 cup (60 ml) of baking soda and 1/4 cup (60 ml) of water. Next, write using a Q-tip, toothpick or brush on a piece of paper. Let it dry completely. To read the secret message, paint grape juice concentrate across the paper with a paint brush or a sponge. Don't forget - grape juice stains. Why it works: Grape juice has an acid that reacts with the baking soda. A different color appears wherever the secret message is written.

Invisible Ink the Milky Way Put a little milk in a small bowl. Write with the milk on a piece of paper with a Q-tip or a brush. Let your message dry completely. To read the message just heat the paper. Use an iron or 100-watt light bulb or stove element. Don't rest the paper on the bulb. Ask an adult to help in case a fire starts and never use a halogen light. Why it works: Milk is an organic product which means it comes from a living thing. When it's heated, it burns at a slower rate than the paper. Your invisible message shows up brown.

Invisible Ink the Lemon Way This works the same way as the Milky Way. Simply dab a Q-tip or brush into a bowl of lemon juice and write away. Just make sure you don't use too much. To see the message, simply heat the paper after it dries. Another way to see the message is put salt on the drying ink. Give it a minute and then wipe the salt off. Use a wax crayon to color over the message. Why it works: Both lemon juice and milk are mildly acidic and acid weakens paper. The acid remains in the paper after the juice or milk has dried. When the paper is held near heat the acidic parts of the paper burn or turn brown before the rest of the paper does. These are only a few ways to make invisible ink. Using the same heat method, you can also use white wine, vinegar, apple juice, and even orange juice, to name just a few. Try some other fruit juices to see what works.

Your Space: Poem by Emily H

A rabbit, how strange! With a waistcoat, that’s a change Where will it go? I think I might follow The odd little rabbit A giant rabbit hole Oh no I’ve lost control! I’ve fallen inside Goodbye Dinah I cried Passing marmalade There might be a spade How peculiar is this place? I hope I don’t land on my face

What is that? It’s a Cheshire cat! Cheshire cat where do I go? That depends on where you ought to be Well as long as I get to a place I don’t really care Well if you go straight long enough you’ll get somewhere


Yes but where? Over there is the March hare Why thank you Cheshire cat I think I’ll try get to that Or there is the Mad Hatter You could chatter, chatter, and chatter I wouldn’t want to visit anyone mad He might do something bad Well everyone’s mad in wonderland Well can’t you at least give me a hand? Oh no one’s ever going to help me Don’t you agree? Cheshire?? Oh you’ve disappeared! That’s so weird!

Oh Alice! You’ve been asleep Alice found a red queen And must have been That queen Alice thought was quite very deep! mean Alice was offered a game of croquet And Alice was delighted to play No mother I was in wonderland Alice came across a blue caterpillar She decided to chatter He asked who are you? Alice replied well I haven’t a clue
