Story Summary:

As a young boy Robin Hood was an excellent archer. After shooting one of the sheriff’s men, Robin heads into Sherwood forest to live as an outlaw. Follow Robin and his merry men as they set out on an adventure to take from the rich, help the poor, and fight for justice!

This accompanying unit study is meant to be used with the Classic Starts The Adventures of Robin Hood version as retold from the Howard Pyle 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 unit study and 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.

 

 

For older students:

This unit includes 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 16 mini-books plus 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. Can you remind what to do when we have the unit on our computer and some of the pages are the black lines? Does that make sense? I remember it being discussed on another page but can’t remember the solution.

  2. Hi! I am going to be teaching a literature class to 5th graders at our homeschool co-op. Are you ok with me using this for that purpose?

    Thanks!

  3. Is there a movie, other than the Disney animated one, that is appropriate to watch? That is the only Robin Hood movie I can think of that would be family friendly. Thanks!

    • Hi Christa,
      I’m not sure, since Robin Hood adult movies can be kind of well, adult, I stuck to the animated one as well…
