This packet is based upon Gary Paulsen's novel; Hatchet. It includes an article that can be used to enhance the survival topic of the book, and a link to an NPR talk that will add depth to the topic of "Slowing Down".
The packet is made for students. I have included a paper that explains what should happen on every page.
This packet has multiple assignments for students to complete after certain sections of the book is read. These assignments range from finding evidence to writing pieces, all culminating in a fishbowl discussion and a compare and contrast page between the book and the movie.
Of course you can pick and choose how you want to approach this book study. Each section of the packet can stand alone.
Most pages are aligned to Common Core standards.
