  • Great resource! This has been my first year teaching sixth grade and this unit was very helpful. I had not taught Hatchet before, never even read it myself in school, but the questions helped the kids and I think deeper about the novel and were a great jumping off point for class discussion.

Hatchet is a Newbery Honor winning story about a boy surviving a plane crash in the Canadian wilderness. Miles off course, Brian must wait out the search for him while surviving in the harsh environment. With nothing but a hatchet his mother gave him, Brian soon discovers his greatest tool for survival is himself. A bear, porcupine, moose and even tornado threaten to hinder Brian’s attempt at survival; however, he manages to make a shelter for himself, weapons, and finally a fire. With these tools, Brian must hunt and gather food and water in order to stay alive while he waits for a rescue plane to find him.
