I am sure I got these online somewhere, but I can't remember where.

I have always done this book with my gifted 4th graders.
During the story, I do a lot with vocabulary and figurative language. I also have the kids complete these three projects:
~Picture Book - Draw a picture and write a sentence for each chapter, bind into a book with cover, title page, etc.
~Create a survival guide - Page for each type of animal/difficult situation Brian encounters, and how to deal with each.
~Create a replica of Brian's shelter using natural materials. Some kids have come up with real creative ideas for this!

Hope these help. There's a lot more, but I don't have anything with me here at home. I will check at school tomorrow.
