Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
for the materials you will need a giant pile of 12 to 13 foot sticks with a diameter of about one inch to 7 inches
lots of twine about 200 feet and a hatchet
you will also need a 5-6 foot step ladder
and a shovel
plus a tape measure mine is a 25 foot it only has to be at least 15 feet
the last thing you will need is lots and lots of tall grass or weeds
dig a two foot hole and put the strongest widest and longest stick you have into the hole i put a 12 foot stick into the hole this will determine how tall your fort will be
sing lots of twine and the step ladder tie all of the tops of the sticks together make sure they are all of equal distance away from the base. also make sure the sticks form a circle around the middle stick. make sure to also leave room for a door.
OPTIONAL-build a small mound of dirt around the base of each stick. this helps hold the sticks in place
wrap twine around the outside of the fort. this will help hold up the walls
using the tall grass or weeds start to press them on to the outside of the fort. make sure to leave room for the door
once you are done pressing all of the weeds\tall grass on (I left asmall part of the topbare to let in light-optional) it is time to start one the door
This door is optional you can leave a blank hole there instead.for the door break or cut about 8-9 pieces as wide as your door.
using the twine tie the pieces together at equal distances and leave about 10 inches left on either side
tie a short stick to two long vertical sticks attached to the top hang your almost ready door there
weave the weeds/tall grass in between the sticks that you are using for the door and then after it is all filled in your fort is done!
