Hatchet by Gary Paulsen
Gary Paulsen’s award-winning novel, Hatchet, is the classic survival story for elementary students. It recounts the adventures of Brian, who is on his way to visit his father in a small single-engine airplane when the pilot suddenly has a heart attack and the plane crashes. The fast-paced plot and use of character development make Hatchet an ideal choice for close reading mini lessons where students learn to ask questions while reading as well as cite textual evidence to defend their conclusions.
