Unit 3: King Arthur and the Round Table

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Over four weeks, fourth graders study King Arthur and the Round Table, retold by Alice M. Hadfield. Fifteen lessons take pupils through each chapter, complete word work, and the writing process to draft paragraphs, sentences, dialogue, and a short story. Four days provide time to pause, take assessments, and participate in culminating activities.
