Class Experience

Students will know what kinds of natural materials to collect and how to build a fire safely in the forest. 
Camping and bushcraft has been a passion of mine since childhood.  I believe that true respect for the planet and its environment comes from spending time in nature, understanding its wonder, and feeling confident and safe in the woods. 
All the natural materials will be collected by the teacher. Students might want to invest in an inexpensive firesteel in order to try out some of these techniques in the future, but it will not be necessary for them in the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal questioning throughout the class.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
To ensure safety with a class like this, the teacher will be the only person in the class allowed to handle the firesteel for making sparks and the only one to demonstrate building a fire safely.  After the class, students may want to try some of the techniques learned and they will need adult supervision to do this.  This safety requirement as well as other safety precautions will be focused on and highlighted throughout the class.
