The Wind in the Willows Unit Study

Hi everyone! I have a brand new Classic Literature Unit Study for you today!

 

Introducing The Wind in the Willows Unit Study & Lapbook

The Wind in the Willows is a cute story about Toad, mole, Rat, and Badger, four great pals who live in the country. Students reading this story will join along in a fun adventure where the friends set out on an adventure, get into mischief, come up with inventive schemes of getting  out of said trouble, defend one another, and share an enduring friendship that rises above species!

For this unit I am using the Classic Starts The Wind in the Willows version. I find the Classic Starts a little easier for younger readers, but you could certainly use this unit with the original version if you have an older student. The assignments are written to go with the Classic Starts edition, but the concepts are the same, so you should be able to complete the lapbook using any version you choose.

What’s included in the Unit Study?

Each unit includes everything you need to complete The Wind in the Willows lapbook with the exception of the book itself and the file folders.

Included is a teacher’s manual with the mini-book questions and answers. 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.

The unit includes 5 reports that your students can complete. The reports include:

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

If you’re doing this unit with younger readers you might want to skip these pages, but it’s totally up to you.

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

This unit has 20 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.

  1. You’ll never know how absolutely giddy Lorelai was to see this. It made me laugh.

  2. Where do you find folders like that?

    Hi!

    I am so excited to start these literature units with my daughter. Thanks for making these! We are beginning the Scientists and Inventors series this week. I am curious as to how you apply the cover sheet to the folder flaps? I was hoping your tutorial would show how you do that step. Maybe you could share your technique?
    Thanks~

    • Hi Karen,
      I paste the cover onto one side of the flap, then turn it over and cut along the folder. Then paste the other half on the other side of the file folder flap so they match up. Hope that makes sense!

  4. Erica, you have been an inspiration to me. I am currently a third grade teacher and mother of 2. I personallysee how public education is failing our children. I am praying for God to open doors for me to homeschool. I love your blog and am in awe of your dedication to your children and to God. Thank you for being an inspiration to me.

    • Hi Toni,
      Thank you for the kind comment! I’m always blessed to hear how God uses my blog to encourage others :o)

  5. My children are so excited you have more literature units coming. What are the other books you’ll be doing or is it a surprise?

  6. What age range would you say this is for (and your other literature studies)?
