PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A fun, high-interest, low-readability literature unit for Gordon Korman's popular "Island" series. This download includes worksheets, activities, quizzes, and a final test for "Book One: Shipwreck," "Book Two: Survival," and "Book Three: Escape."

Activities are hands-on and help raise student interest, especially in unmotivated readers. Reading comprehension questions include a mix of prediction, reaction, questioning, and visualizing techniques to really heighten student comprehension, and quizzes and final test all come with answer keys.

With this download and the novels you would be ready to start a unit on this series immediately!

All activities and assessments can be downloaded individually and/or bundled together for each book in the series.

I have read this book with students for years, and never had the time to really develop a unit. I LOVE this! Thank you. The opening activity was very engaging, and my students are hooked. (and I wonder where you work, my sister lives in Carlisle and her son-now at Stanford- attended school there)

I have a large group of boys for my reading group and they loved this book and the worksheets and activities were perfect to pull and use and to judge understanding. The coconut activity was a favorite activity. This was a great time saver as I usually have to create my own lessons, worksheets, tests and activities for any books I use.
