Persevering with the bow saw

Posted by on March 17, 2014

This morning CIRP did some super persevering using the bow saw. They didn’t find it very easy but they stretched their perseverance muscles and managed to cut themselves a wooden cookie. Before we did that though we had to learn about how we would keep safe using the saw, especially as the boys noticed how sharp it’s teeth were.

The group were also collaborating to make a shelter together. As usual the group had different jobs, Jamie and Gage were chief collectors, Scott was the boss of tying strings, Lydon was Deon’s assistant, and Deon was the “teller what to doer”.

They then got absorbed in decorating their wooden cookies, before they collaborated to make maps of the area. Finally, what better way to finish than hot pop and marshmallows?

      Even more than skittles? I read somewhere that you can toast starburst sweets on the campfire. Next time shall we experiment with toasting different things and see which we like the best? I think toasted mars bar might be nice! What do you think?
