    I highly suggest that you read the book Hatchet, by Gary Paulson. My fifth grade classes LOVE this realistic book about the survival challenges a boy faces after the bush plane he's traveling in crashes. Brian, the main character, has to learn how to survive, how to find food, etc, but also has to deal with his emotions and attitude towards his situation and learns how his attitude affects the chances of his survival. There's also a movie called "A Cry in the Wild" that you can show your class. There are also two other books by Gary Paulson you can read. One is Brian's Winter and the other is The River. Check 'em out!!!
