Hi everyone! I wanted to share my new King Arthur & His Knights Unit Study & Lapbook. Hope you enjoy!



Story Summary:

King Arthur and His Knights is the tale of Camelot and the mystical land filled with knights and wizards. In this version students will read how King Arthur came to power, and all about the adventures of his Knights of the Round Table as they battle their way across the forests and islands they call home.

This unit is meant to be used with the Classic Starts King Arthur & His Knights 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. You can assign them out individually to your student so they read on their own, then complete the mini-book assignment for each chapter.

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 a literature unit take?

That really depends on your child’s reading speed, and how many chapters there are in the book! Each one varies, and you can easily modify these units to fit your schedule. So for example, you can assign a chapter per day plus 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 King Arthur & His Knights 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 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. I love this! Wish I would have stumbled across this lap book concept months ago. Did you wind up finding a movie that works? What about Disney’s animated Sword and the Stone? I am taking my (3rd grade) daughter to see King Arthur play at a community theater and thought that she would enjoy the play. But then also realized she had no exposure to the story, and that knowing the story would help her enjoy the play. At that point, I stumbled across the Classic Starts version, which we have started reading. We also just watched A Kid in King Arthur’s Court (not the greatest example), and I’m waiting for our copy of Sword and the Stone as well. I would probably have her do the the report on Play vs Book rather than Movie vs Book, but will see what my own opinion of Play vs Movie is first!
