The Chronicles of Narnia

Children's Ministry Magazine

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is an amazing movie with a strong Christian worldview. Use this talk sheet in class or send home for families to use as a discussion guide to advance faith in kids and families.

Have everyone close their eyes, turn around in a circle until they're dizzy, and then try to walk a straight line.

Ask: How did you feel? How is that like or unlike the way the kids may've felt when they first came to Narnia? How would you have felt in Narnia?

Ask: Of the four children, who do you think you're most like? Explain. What obstacles did each child face in Narnia? What did it take for the children to come together more as a family?

Ask: At the end of the movie, what significance does each child's royal title and description have? How did you see each child grow in the area Aslan mentioned?

Give each child a royal title. For example, say: If I were to give you a royal title, I would say that you are King James the Brave or Queen Ana the Kind.

Show children several symbols and explain that symbols represent things; for example, a wedding ring represents a marriage commitment and a cross represents Christ's death for us.

Ask: What do these things represent in the movie: the White Witch; turkish delight; Santa's gifts; Aslan?

Read aloud Romans 1:1-4. Ask: How is Aslan coming back to life in the movie like or unlike Jesus rising from the dead in real life? What do you think are the Christian messages from this movie?

Use these questions to spark kids' discussion about the movie.
