***Wikipedia*** As part of the week one content student will be reviewing the following article about Cessna planes on Wikipedia. Content will be provided via Nearpod.

Hatchet is generally recommended for ages 10+. Common Sense Media suggests 11+ and rates it 3 out of 5 for violence and scariness.
From Common Sense Media: "Parents need to know that Gary Paulsen's Hatchet is an intense, fast, exciting read. The main character is a 13-year-old boy whose parents are divorced. He survives a plane crash in the Canadian wilderness en route to visit his father and must use the hatchet his mother once gave him to stay alive. Many kids report that this is the first school-assigned book they fell in love with."
