Each unit study contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they

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 designed the units to give students 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 unit students will create do a chocolate taste test, do some chocolate math, learn new vocabulary words, and
do a character analysis.
They’ll also make a fun chocolate bites recipe, write a few lines of their own version of the Oompa Loompa’s song,
and design their dream candy along with a recipe, and any unique features they can think of! They’ll also learn quite
a few valuable character traits along the way!
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.
