ED 411-Castle in the Air

Castle in the Air - Diana Wynne Jones

This story is based off Arabian Nights: One Thousand and One Nights. This story takes place in the world of Howl's Moving Castle. Abdullah spends a lot of his time daydreaming. When his dreams start coming true, he is thrilled until things start to go bad. Abdullah must set off on a quest to save the princess and live happily ever after. I would implement this story in the class room to teach cause and effect. I would have students create individual charts to fill in while reading the story. This story is intended for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders.
