This activity is designed to help students realize context by analyzing information and producing an accurate visual representation of the setting of the story "The Most Dangerous Game." Students can complete this project in pairs or individually. This assignment requires students to recall specific details from the text, analyze details for their relationships to each other, and visually depict the context of the story.
Included on the handout (there are two of the same instructions on one piece of paper to reduce paper usage; it will need to be cut in half) are the requirements of the project (name, compass, key, color, nine sites from the story). The required nine sites from the story include the page number from the Prentice Hall Language and Literature textbook (9th grade).
Also included is a sample map I created to allow students to see what is expected. It is NOT a completed map; it only gives a visual to students to get them on the right track.
