Our Big Adventure!

One day, our teacher said we were going on a big adventure!  We didn't know what she was talking about!  She took us out the back doors where we go for recess, and we walked past the playground!  We walked toward the middle school next door!

Then we got to a path that led into a nature area in between the schools.  As we walked through the woody area, our teacher told us that we were going to pretend to live like Native Americans.  She explained that Native Americans didn't go to stores to get things they needed, the used things from nature.

We had to look around us as we walked for things that could be helpful for making things like shelter and tools.  It was a lot of fun!  I never realized how much you can make with things you find on the ground!

We had a few big sticks that we thought would be good for a roof pole to tie between trees with vines.  Then we were going to use leaves and branches to make the roof and sides of our house.  It would definitely be a lot of work living when the Native Americans did!
