On Friday, students built shelters using materials found in the woods. They navigated their way through the urban jungle to a secret location using map and compass skills. For legal reasons, we were not able to test out the shelters overnight, but we hope this activity provided some insight into the struggles and joys of survival outside of the classroom.
