I just began reading Hatchet by Gary Paulsen with my fifth graders today. Does anyone have any good ideas/activities?

Thanks in advance!

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.

do a google search for "Gay Miller's reading units" and access her site. She has tons of stuff on Hatchet. Also, lindaslinkstoliterature.com is great but you have to pay now to be member.
