Survival Field Trip

We arrived in Silverado Canyon for a survival field trip which included building a shelter.

We learned about what we could eat if we were lost. Also, we saw a swarm of bees moving their home and protecting the queen bee.

We walked a little bit on the pavement and followed a narrow path to a clearing.

At the clearing, we collected big sticks to make a shelter. It was very hard. First, we had to take the biggest stick and tie it to smaller sticks. Then, we put branches as walls and piled them up till there were no more cracks. After that, we put on leaves to fill in the holes. All of us went into the shelter, but the oak leaves hurt.

We had a great day and did not encounter any rattlesnakes. Thank you for stopping by CommuniKate!!
