Our project for this nine weeks is to complete a Survival Guide.  This will be done based on the information that we have read this nine-weeks.  As a class we have read both fiction works and non-fictions works about survival in different situations.  The students will "draw from a hat" a scenario that they will research. 

Survival Projects are due Thursday, May 23, 2013.

The Unit that we are covering in the 4th Nine Weeks of this year, is Survival in the Wild.

Our essential question is, What similarities and differences exist among characters who survive in the wilderness?

The novel we are reading is Call of the Wild, by Jack London.
