I teach 5th grade reading. I am going to use The Sign of the Beaver for a class novel. Does anyone have some activities that they used with this novel to share? Thank you in advance.

Sign of the Beaver

I love this story. I used it with fourth graders years ago. I had my students create rafts and then explain to the class what they used to make the raft and how it was constructed. Then we gave them the float test. I am sorry I do not have my assignment sheet or rubric for grading anymore.
