This final project for the book Hatchet is great for students who enjoy creative thinking and artwork. The assignment assesses students' understanding of the book through artwork and through a writing component. Students are asked to illustrate a new front and back cover to the book. The covers should include an original picture representative of the content of the book, a concise overview that would "sell" it to the readers, and original book review critiques. An additional writing component asks students to explain their artwork. The assignment sheets are designed specifically for Hatchet, but the rubric can be used to assess any final project that asks students to create a new front and back cover.
