This unit is meant to be used with the Classic Starts 20,000 Leagues
Under the Sea version as retold from the Jules Verne original.
The Classic Start versions are abridged to make them little easier for younger readers to understand, 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. That said, you may need to read ahead to help align the comprehension questions or activities with whatever version of the book you’re reading. There’s also the possibility that some of the questions may not line up directly with your text.

What's included in the Unit Study?
Each unit includes everything you need to complete the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea 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 thoroughout the story.
Then on the backside of the lapbook, I added a pocket to the backside where you can store the reports and story
