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.
