Activity Overview


Though there are only a few characters in the Hatchet book, and each one has a very powerful impact on the protagonist, Brian. In this character map, students should think about the impact each character has on Brian and his ability to survive after the crash.

Students can complete this character map while they read or once they've finished. Feel free to extend the activity to have students keep track of other important aspects of each character!
