"Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen

For the first several weeks of school, the boys in 5th and 6th grade computer lab read "Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen.  After we finished the book we created our own Hatchet Museum.  Each student made, drew, or brought an item that represented something from the book.  Then we made descriptive tags that let the museum patrons know a little information about that item.  We were all impressed with how our museum turned out.  Next year we will probably have to charge admission!
