We've got to make the most of every minute in our over-scheduled school days. Going one-to-one with iPads and Chromebooks means even more is expected of us, so I tried to combine as much as possible in making this Hyperlinked PDF. It is designed to be used on a computer or tablet—perfect for iPads or Chromebooks—while reading the novel Hatchet. Included are questions to spark critical thinking and links to help students understand unfamiliar concepts. In an effort to engage students of varying levels while integrating multiple subjects, videos, images, and articles are linked and thought was taken to balance reading with video and fiction with non-fiction. Students use a notebook to answer questions and complete activities, so they aren’t entirely on screens, but using them as a tool.

With advanced readers in mind, image links and a page of extras are included for early finishers to explore. This project can be used with a whole class, small group, or individually. You can assign all of it or part. That’s why homeschoolers love my book projects! This is an excellent resource for distance learning and instead of a paper notebook, this can easily be adapted to a digital notebook format. As this is self-contained and highly engaging, it is ideal for students who read at different rates or assigned to advanced students for individual work knowing those students won’t miss the details.

Integration is key so I included as many subjects as possible within the context of the story and aligned all of it with common core focusing on analysis from multiple sources of media.
