Charlotte's Web,written by E.B. White, is a story about a friendship mainly between Charlotte and Wilbur. Throughout the story Wilbur learns about how important friendship is. I would use this story in a 5th grade classroom to teach the importance of friendship. After reading the story the students will realize that sometimes our most wonderful friendships come from the most unlikely places and people. Charlotte's Web also shows students the importance of acceptance. If Charlotte and Wilbur would not have accepted each other they would have never became friends. It is crucial for students to be accepting to others even when others are different from them.
