It was beautiful spending the morning with the 3rd graders. When we first arrived at the shelter building site, The chipmunk tribe (Fiona, Krista and Jasper) realized their structure had been compromised by someone or something. They were devastated. There were even tears. This picture shows Ms. Mansuri helping to build back their morale. She told them to use their sadness and anger to rebuild. They did it! The eagle tribe offered many words of encouragement and congratulated them at the end. They all worked together so
beautifully!! It was such a pleasure watching them learn these valuable life lessons.

The Eagle Tribe:
“I built a shelter with Noah, Camila, and of course, me. We made the skeleton of the shelter. Then we put on the vines and leaves and other stuff. Then we made a kitchen with berries and stuff. It is fun!” ~ Tess
The Chipmunk Tribe:
“My shelter was knocked down when I got to the park. I cried, but Jasper and Krista and I rebuilt it again and made it more beautiful.” ~ Fiona
“The shelter is awesome! It was frustrating when the shelter fell down!” ~ Krista
