A great research project to go along with the book, "Hatchet", by Gary Paulsen. This is a set of animal information pages (based on the animals that Brian encountered) that can be compiled into a great nature log while students are reading the book.
I simply print the pages and put them into a 3-prong folder! Students work on the nature log pages when they are done with other assignments in class (it is great for those early finishers)! Students can decide how many pages to complete, or the teacher can require a minimum amount. Students need to research using books and/or the Internet.
