Students should use their creativity and any kind of paper they think fits the mood/setting of the story. (Optional) They can even stuff it in a bottle to send out into the wide ocean.

"When your letter (and bottle?) is done, your teacher will tell you when it’s due, whether or not to stuff your letter or seal the bottle yet, and what to do with it all. They might have you present your letter, display it in class, or some other method."

Students will not only enjoy this engaging activity, but they'll be challenged to use their character knowledge to engage in a creative writing assignment that is tied to the novel's content.

Enjoy ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS! Hope really can come alive.
