Product Description

Take a Peek Inside:

Get a detailed account of what it takes to survive alone on a dangerous island with this tale based on a true story. Add variety and differentiation with true or false, multiple choice and short answer questions. Put events in order as they occurred between the Aleuts and Karana's tribe. Brainstorm what Karana could have done in preparation for the Aleut's departure. Study vocabulary words found in the reading by using a dictionary to match words to their synonyms. Identify which character did the provided actions. Create a menu using only food that Karana has available on the island. Imagine what it's like to live along for 18 years and write Karana a letter of encouragement.

About the Novel:

The classic story, Island of the Blue Dolphins, is based on the true story of a woman marooned on San Nicholas Island during the early 1800s. Karana, her family and her people are living on the island when the Aleuts (Russians) arrive to hunt the sea otters. The Aleuts kill the natives leaving Karana and her brother Ramo stranded on the island. Soon after, wild dogs kill Ramo, and Karana is left to struggle on her own. For eighteen years she lives to survive the weather, the animals, the Aleuts and the loneliness. This story is about a strong and courageous woman who proved that with determination, nothing is insurmountable.
