Hello my name is Brianna. I am in 5th grade and am going to do a close reading blog. I am honored to be the close reading blogger.
This week, we are working with the text named’ ’Hatchet’’. Hatchet is about a boy that goes to meet his dad on a plane, but the pilot has a heart attack and so Brian has to crash land the plane into the Canadian wilderness. This was interesting to read about because we are learning about forest ecosystem in PBL and so this was cool to see what it would be like to be lost in that ecosystem.
So far we have been working on text based questions. We have been answering them with our groups.
I asked some people in my class about a question based on the text. For instance one of the question was, “How would you feel if you were stuck in the wilderness?” Jeremy said, ’’I would be worried because I will have nowhere to go.” On the other hand, Angela said, “I am not scared. I am brave.” As for me, I would be so worried because no one would know I was there.
The other question I asked was, “How would you survive if you were stranded in the Canadian wilderness?” Jacob said he will find food and break trees so he could see better to find the way to a town or a phone. But Merlin said she will gather sticks and make a fire. Both good ideas.
Stay tuned for next week!
