            Today, Wednesday, January 8, 2013, I went outside on the trail behind the Herrick House. There were 4 students and we went in groups of 2. For our Winter Survival learning we went outside and in the groups of 2 tried to make a shelter. In my group, we used a large rock and put sticks around it. In the middle, we used more taller sticks and on the side, we used smaller sized sticks. We also tried to put sticks out wards on one side to keep warmth in. The shelter is able to fit about 2 people in it. While I was it in, it was quite warm. The other group had sticks facing upward and sticks supporting the shelter. They also had green pine sticks inside as well. In the groups, we went to see the other group’s and had to make a comment on something you liked and a question or suggestion. My question was why was it built so close to a stream? The group had an interesting answer. Today was an interesting day.
