Bring a Book to Life

Grades 3-7
Truly one of a kind, this program immerses students in the actual experiences of the characters from three Newbury Honor Books: Jean Craighead George’s - My Side of the Mountain (gr. 4-6); Gary Paulsen’s - Hatchet (gr. 4-7); and Joseph Bruchac’s - Children of the Longhouse (gr.3-5). Identify wild edibles, build shelters out of materials gathered in the forest, learn how to build a fire with flint and steel, discover how to track animals, and more! For best experience, we recommend that students complete book prior to visit. RD-EP-2.0.5, SC-EP-3.4.1, SC-EP-3.4.4, SS-EP-4.4.1, SS-04-4.4.1, SC-04-4.6.5, SS-05-4.4.1,
