A complete literature unit to use when reading author Gordon Korman's popular "Island" series. This unit is for Book One: Shipwreck.
The unit includes reading comprehension questions for each chapter, an opening activity, activities on characterization and understanding 24-hour clocks, and a 20-point quiz.
A great high-interest, low-readability series perfect for use with unmotivated readers, learning support students, boys who don't know what to read, and as an exciting series to get students interested in reading as they come back-to-school. This unit is ready to go and you could start using the novel immediately with little to no planning.
Each activity in this unit is also available for download individually.
Additionally, downloads for units on "Book 2: Survival" and "Book 3: Escape" in this series are available. Or, you could download literature units for all three novels at the same time - "Gordon Korman's "Island" Complete Series - Literature Unit.
As always, if you are displeased with your purchase for any reason, please contact me so I can make it right!
