This week saw the end of our literature circle unit, which covered the general topic of wilderness survival. At the beginning of the unit, students chose one of four books to read: Into Thin Air, Far North, Touching Spirit Bear, or Hide and Seek. Now that we are at the end of the unit, students are working with their groups to create a book jacket for their novels. They will design a cover for their book, write a summary, create a character resume, complete two vocabulary activities, write a diamante poem, and write a character analysis paragraph. Students will have class time on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday to work on this project, and book jackets will then be on display in our classroom next week.
