Owls, March 25

Themes Explored:

-carving with fire

-orienteering and map reading

-animal adaptations

-hiking skills (staying together, navigating different trail conditions, making decisions as a group, looking after the slowest hikers)

Skills Embraced:

-Animal Game: finding resources in the forest, becoming the animal (empathy)

-patience with the ember carving (we placed an ember on wood, and fanned the coal to burn into our wood which we then carved out)

-sprinting; map reading in the orienteering course!

-precision; reading a map with enough detail to find flagging tape

Connection Questions: What could your animal do during the Animal Game? (superpower). What surprised you about the day? Can you describe carving with embers? Who became and Disney princess and why?
