Around the World in 80 Days Study Guide


Around the World in Eighty Days

by Jules Vern

Phileas Fogg wagered half his fortune that he can travel around the world in eighty days, crossing jungles, deserts, mountains, oceans -- all the while being pursued by a bounty hunter determined to stop him

Barbara’s Notes: This is a fun story to read, combining action, humor and challenging vocabulary. Although TLP is a literature program, this study includes a geography section. We are excited to offer this light-hearted study, and heartily recommend it to balance some of the weightier reading offered at this level. (Grades 9, 10, 11)
