    Summary booklet

    When reading Hatchet you can have your students make summary booklets.

    Cut a piece of 9x12 construction paper in half (hamburger cut) and use the half sheet as a cover for the booklet.

    Then take white copy paper 8.5 x 11 and cut it in half (hamburger cut). You will need enough of the half white sheets so that they have one for every chapter. You can get 4 chapters out of one half sheet because they will be folded in half and stapled inside the construction paper cover to make a book.

    Each day after reading a chapter have the students write a short two or three sentence summary at the top of one of the pages. Then have them draw and color a picture to go along with the summary. Make sure you have them label the chapter at the top or bottom of the page.

    When this is finished they will have a summary of the entire book.
