What We Are Learning

environment change a person?” Through this real-world topic we

will identify, infer, and describe characteristics needed for

survival. We will study details, character changes, and make

connections to help us incorporate sequence and dialogue in to

informational essays. Our main texts are Hatchet and the SAS

Survival Handbook.
