I have lesson plans for Tom Sawyer that I bought through Scholastic Publishing. They also have lesson plans online for several of Twain's works. The Mark Twain House in Connecticut also has lesson plans for sale for $14:

The Mark Twain house has a sample lesson plan on its website, as well. The links below will direct you to Scholastic's online lesson plans and the Mark Twain House's Education Department.
