4/17 G8 Literature Class :LOTF Shelter Building
G8 Literature Class✍️ :LOTF Shelter Building
The 8th grade literature class📖 is reading the classic novel, Lord of the Flies. In the novel, a group of boys👬👬 is stranded on a deserted island, and they must work together to figure out how to survive. In addition to finding food and water, the boys need to build a shelter that will keep them safe from nature (including wild beasts!). To simulate what it would be like in the story, he students worked in teams of three during class today to build miniature shelters using only the natural materials they could find outside. They gathered leaves🍂, sticks, stones, and grass, then used knowledge they learned on the internet and from Boy Scouts to build their shelters. One group even tried to build a shelter that would be big enough to sit inside!
