Activity Overview


Brian learns several lessons throughout his time in the wilderness, many of which are related to survival. They're both useful and interesting for students to understand and if they're particularly interested, perhaps even research! Have students create a single page, or a series of pages, of a survival booklet based on what they've read in the story.

This activity can be extended to a class activity if students create one or two pages. You can assign them specific lessons or have them select their favorite. Once they've finished, the pages can be printed out and combined into a class survival booklet!
