The Voyages of Doctor Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting tells the tale of a doctor who prefers animal patients to human ones. Doctor Dolittle learns that he can speak to animals in their own languages which allows him to better understand his unique patients and provides for a fun adventure filled story! His animal friends include a parrot, pig, dog, duck, monkey, owl, and a Pushmi-pullyu, and a white mouse. Doctor Dolittle and his friends head out on a voyage to Africa where they encounter evil kings and treacherous pirates on his way to their most important case ever!
While you can modify it to be used with other versions, this literature unit is meant to be used with the classic starts version of The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting.
Each unit study contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the book. They also include book reports, vocabulary, critical thinking, story timelines, and comprehension. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well. I really designed these units to be a fun addition to reading the classics.
I didn’t want them to be too stressful for myself or my kiddos, but instead give them something fun to do along with the stories to help them remember what they’ve learned in a fun hands-on way. The lap books included are wonderful for reviewing subject matter, and a great creative interactive homeschooling tool.
In this study students will discuss characteristics of the main characters, learn about some of the animals, create their own unique animal language, learn vocabulary, traits that make up a hero, and more!
The units also include forms for predicting story plots, character analysis, identifying the protagonist and antagonist, a story timeline, and a final book report on the novel.
