Anne of Green Gables Unit Study & Lapbook

Hi everyone! I have a new literature unit to add to our collection! Today I’m sharing my new Anne of Green Gables Unit Study and Lapbook. Hope you enjoy!



Story Summary:

Anne is a sweet, imaginative, and charismatic young orphan girl who is unexpectedly adopted by a family in Green Gables. The story follows Anne as she experiences the pains and joys of becoming part of a family. And her life growing up in the remote Canadian village of Avonlea.

This accompanying unit study is meant to be used with the Classic Starts Anne of Green Gables version as retold from the Lucy Maud Montgomery original. The Classic Start versions are find them a little easier for younger readers, but you could certainly use this unit study with the original version if you have an older student. The lapbook chapters will correlate with the Classic Starts edition, but the concepts are the same, so you should be able to complete the units using any version you choose.

What ages are these units for?

I normally recommend my literature units for elementary level readers grades 1-5. You can assign them out individually to your student so they read on their own, then complete the mini-book assignment for each chapter. There are writing assignments for each chapter as your students answer comprehension questions from the reading. So you’ll just want to make sure they’re comfortable writing.

Or you can read it together as a group if you have younger readers, then have them complete the mini-book assignments when you’re done with each chapter.


How long does the literature unit take?

That really depends on your child’s reading speed, and how many chapters there are in the book! And how fast your child reads through the chapters as well.

Each one varies in length, and you can easily modify these units to fit your schedule. So for example, you can assign one chapter per day plus the associated mini-book assignments, or you can have them do 2-3/week. It’s totally up to you, your schedule, and your student.


What’s included in the Unit Study?

Each unit includes everything you need to complete the Anne of Green Gables lapbook with the exception of the book itself and the file folders.

The download includes a teacher’s manual with the daily reading assignments, along with the comprehension questions and answers for each chapter. This makes it much easier for you to help your students even if you haven’t read the book yourself!

There is also one mini-book for each chapter in the book. Inside your student will answer a comprehension question that relates directly to the chapter they’ve just read. Some assignments include vocabulary words, mapping the voyage, and completing the mini-reports.



Extras for older students:

This unit includes also 5 reports that your students can complete. If you have older readers, have them do these reports to make the unit a bit more challenging. If you have younger readers, you might prefer to ask the questions verbally so they aren’t having to write a report.


The reports include:

  • Story Facts (Setting, Main Plot, Main Characters)
  • Protagonist vs. Antagonist
  • Prediction Sheet
  • My Book Report
  • Book vs. Movie
  • Storyboard timeline


As you read through the book, each chapter has a mini-book with comprehension questions for your student to complete.



This unit has 25 mini-books including a vocabulary mini-book full of terms to learn throughout the story.



Then on the backside of the lapbook, I added a pocket to the backside where you can store the reports and story timeline.

    Hi Erica!

    Will you be compiling the recent literature studies that you’ve done into one set, like you have with the original classic literature studies? Thanks for all you do!

    When I was younger, Anne of Green Gables was my favorite set of books. I loved the story line. Thank you for sharing. Have a great day!!!

    Daniel Defoe is not the original author! These books are my all time favorite. I reread the entire series every few years! 🙂

    Oh my! How awesome! I LOVE Anne of Green Gables! We have several different versions of the book and the complete set of movies. I would love to use this lapbook study with my daughter. We are currently working through your Black Beauty one and she’s having so much fun. Thank you for the opportunity to win this! Are you currently working on another literature lapbook set?

      Hi Tracey, yes I’ll put the new units all together in a set once they’re completed! :o)

    This looks great! Anne of Green Gables is one of my all time favorite books. When I click on the ‘Buy Now’ button it takes me to a page to buy 20,000 Leagues. Can you somehow let me know when it is fixed so I can purchase the correct unit?

    THANK YOU! I love this book and am excited to share my love of it with my 4 little girls. Along with this Unit Study I think they’ll love it even more and always remember it. Thank you again, you’re the best!

    I teach in a homeschool co-op, 7-9 year olds. I would LOVE to use your Anne of GG lapbook, but I am not doing any of the other books in the CLASSROOM edition, and don’t have much budget. Is there a way I can get just Anne of GG permission without purchasing the whole thing?
