While you can modify it to be used with other versions, this literature unit is meant to be used with the original
version of Charlotte's Web by E.B. White.
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.
Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White is the tale of a runt pig named Wilbur who is saved by an intelligent spider named
Charlotte, and the love of a little girl named Fern. The novel tells of Wilbur’s adventures on the farm and his
friendship with Charlotte, the barn spider, and the other farm animals. Charlotte coaches Wilbur in etiquette,
character, and articulateness. When Wilbur’s faces being slaughtered by the farmer, Charlotte writes messages praising
Wilbur in her web in order to persuade the farmer to let him live. Charlotte’s Web is a classic of children’s
literature, but is also enjoyable for adults!
In this unit students will learn about the animals on the farm, roman numerals, seasons, all about pigs, character
studies, and logical thinking skills.
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.
