Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
you will need:
1: tape i find that blue tap works best
2:blankets lots of em
4:safety pins if needed
5:some kind of tall suport i used a telescope
6:some other kind of support like pvc pipe or something(it has to be short but not to short)
7 some chairs
8:and some pillow cases
Step 2: Finding a Place and Building
first you need to fing a large space close to walls and object(like bookshelves tables ec). then you put the large tall support in the middle and drape a sheet over it
Step 3: Tape
then tape the ends of the sheet on the wall and then tape or safety pin another sheet to one end of the origanal sheet
Step 4: Adding Supports
then just keep taping sheets on and taping them to the wall until its as big as you want it, then put chairs in on the sides as needed, then make your entrance and crawl inside. when you see a sging spot or want to make a spot higher just put a short support of needed lenght into the spot.
Step 5: Pillows
now there may be some gaps in the sheet on the side so to fill them up ,if you want to, use pillows, but still there might be a small gap between the sheet and pillow and if your like me, then youll want it dark in your fort so , tape pillow cases to the sides.
Step 6: Your Done!!!
now you are done, bask in the envy of all your friends because your fort is aweseme
Step 7: Optional
if you want you can tape flashlights in your fort for light and you also could stash food and water in there for survivel
