Victorian Literature Unit Study

Age Range:    10-14
Duration:        20 weeks


This is a study of three classic Victorian novels, with a wide variety of subjects covered.  Although designed to be used by a small group, meeting once a week with independent work to be completed between meetings, this unit study can be used by a family or individual child.



  • Using the film “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” as a fun starting point, we have chosen the most age-appropriate books (which involved substituting one with a book by the same author whose character is mentioned near the beginning of the film).
  • Geography work covered by three of Evan Moor’s continent guides.
  • A suggested DVD documentary for each continent.
