PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Hatchet Unit - This comprehensive novel unit for Hatchet, written by Gary Paulsen, has problem-based learning, a collaborative theme activity, questions for constructed response, questions for literature groups, quick quizzes, and vocabulary - everything you need!

Hatchet PBL (W.4.9, W.5.9, W.6.9, and W.7.9) - Can your students find Brian using information from the book? This problem-based learning activity puts students in the driver’s seat. They are asked to find evidence, determine what resources are necessary to translate that evidence to action, and analyze and synthesize information found in multiple resources to solve a problem. These materials involve critical thinking and use of higher order thinking skills.
• instructions for three variations on the problem-based learning activity
• prompt and modeling mini posters
• student sheets
• link to website with helpful links for student research

Hatchet Summarizing and Theme (RL.4.2, RL.5.2, RL.6.2, RL.7.2) – In small groups, students summarize chapters and share. They then analyze challenges Brian faces in the plot and subplot to determine a theme.
• teacher directions
• summary sheet
• theme question sheet
• theme open-ended response sheet

Hatchet Questions for Constructing Responses (RL.4.1, RL.5.1, RL.6.1, RL.7.1) - Polish your students' skills in constructing responses as they read Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. This set of activities teaches students to answer explaining and inferring questions and support with evidence from the text by citing and quoting. Supporting materials include:
• lesson plans
• 23-slide PowerPoint presentation that explores strategies for constructing thorough responses to explaining and inferring questions
• tips for answering questions successfully, including examples
• 10 sheets for constructing responses (one for every two chapters)
• quick grading sheet
• comprehensive rubric
• sample answers for every question

Hatchet Questions for Literature Groups - Build excitement about reading. Make it social! Two pages of questions stimulate discussion for literature groups.

Hatchet Quick Quizzes - Sometimes you just need to know who’s reading and who’s not. Quick quizzes may be used in place of constructing responses (because constructing – and grading - responses every day may be too much), before literature groups meet, or as a stand-alone. Materials include:
• ten pages, each with one question repeated three times - just copy and cut in strips
• answer key

Hatchet Vocabulary (L.4.4, L.5.4, L.6.4 L.7.4, RL.4.4, RL.5.4, RL.6.4, RL.7.4) - Sharpen students' vocabulary skills as they use context clues and reference materials to find specific definitions and synonyms for words from the novel.
• lesson plans
• guided practice
• nine student worksheets
