Building Structures in Nature
Once students have learned about different types of structures such as teepees and A-frames (under weather permitting conditions), students demonstrate their knowledge through a hands-on activity.
Through exploration of different types of structures, the teacher explains that students will be creating leaf fort structures outside from materials found in the forest in small groups.
As students build their forts, the teacher moves between groups to ask students about their structures and their processes in designing the fort.
