Unit 8: Treasure Island

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson is the focus of the final unit, emphasizing reading, writing, grammar, morphology, and spelling. Fourth graders read and discuss a chapter with every lesson, followed by word work—prefixes, pronouns, roots, and verbs. Pupils create an adventure story using the writing process and show what they know over three days of assessments.
