My 4th and 5th graders LOVE LOVE LOVE this adventure book. It is a classic and I teach it from an Illustrated Classic version or a age-adapted version of the book. Gulliver is a doctor who loves to travel. HIs journeys take him to a land of giants and a land where he is the giant. He has owners who respect him and those who use him for profit. This adventure book is also sattire of the British Government, but younger kids won't even know the author has an ulterior motive in writing this novel. They will be so caught up in the adventure. In this unit study, there are vocabulary words and writing assignments.
