  2. One thing I think I will remember for a long time is the "Monday Night Live" our first night at Natures Classroom. I thought a lot of the skits were funny, but to me some made no since. One thing I learned was how to properly use a compass. I didn't know I had been using it wrong for years! I had a fun time at Natures Classroom. I hope we can do more trips like that.

  4. One thing I learned that I won't forget in Nature's Classroom is, how to work as a team. We played lots of games and activities on teamwork. Another thing that I learned is slavery and how bad it was. We got to see what it was like when we played a game called The Underground Railroad. I also know how to not get lost in a forest with a compass. Those are the things I will not forget.

  8. The most fun I had at Nature's classroom was building the rope bridge and feed your face. I like the rope bridge because after we got done building it we got to walk on it, some fell some didn't, I was one of the ones who didn't:)! I liked feed your face because we got to put honey and oats on our face and it felt so weird and scratchy, I also liked feed your face because we got to put lots of grains in a big bowl and then we put it in steaming hot water and my face was really warm when we were done then we had to put our heads in ice water and once we were done my face felt so smooth.

  9. One thing I leaned is that Berma a place in China dosn't use any bricks or wood to make their bridges they walk one one line of rope and two lines as handelbars as a bridge to get across big abysisses and I don't think I'll ever forget that. I had lots of fun with many other things including hikes bon fires and the underground railroad I hope we can do many things like that in the future.

  12. Something I learned in Natures Classroom is what it was like for slaves to travel through the Underground Railroad. When they were traveling through the railroad, they were most likely to encounter a bounty hunter or hopefully an abolitionist. It was very dangerous and they could of got killed, so they could have freedom. That was something I learned in Natures Classroom.

  13. My favorite part was lunch, dinner, and the gift shop. Lunch and dinner were really great. Some were almost better than at home. I really liked the cookies and cake on Mr. Carter's Birth day. (Happy Birthday!)
    I also liked the gift shop more than any other gift shop. Plus I didn't have to use my money, which I hate.

    One thing I think i will always remember is "Monday Night Live." It was very funny because you got to see your classmates do a skit. I was in the yaks so we did the one when the people in the back said "I gotta go wee." Natures classroom was fun and I would love to go again.

  15. The thing that I will remember the most was really being out in the nature with my friends and learning a lot of cool thing that I had no clue about.

  22. One thing I learned in Nature's Classroom was that when you find an injured person in the woods or anywhere else, that you should always see what you might hurt yourself on. Also, if some one has a cut raise it above they're head to stop it from over bleeding, and only if its serous to tie something around it.

  30. One thing I learned at nature's classroom is how to make a geodome. What you do is you is you'll take some wood about the same size and tie three of them together. Then you'll tie the rest of the wood together as triangles and put them all together and tie them again and then finish up with a lot of triangles on the top with a total of 15 triangles in all. One thing I will remember is how much fun I had there and I don't think I was ever bored the whole time I was there. I loved it so much I wanted to live there!

  31. I learned and will remember the Underground Railroad. Cause it was fun because you were at night in the dark being a slave and abolitionists came to save you. It was also scary cause you were in the dark having flash lights being flashed in your face when you were behind. I think our leader, Grant, was very good. I learned what the slaves went trough.

  44. I had the best time ever doing the Underground Railroad. It was amazing but sad to see how slaves had to do to be free. I love that it was overnight and that it seemed soooo realistic. I would want to go back soon if I could. :)

  54. I liked all of the group activities and The Underground Railroad. Cabin time was fun too, because Frances and I would sit on our bunks and yell at each other. It was a wonder Braden's headache got any better...Good times, Good times...The nurse was in our cabin, so we had people running through all the time. The Underground Railroad was fun, but I felt like I was going to fall into the river! I think I will remember ALL of Nature's Classroom! Julia, my field group leader, was awesome!! >.> I wanna go back and see her! >.> Why can't we go again?! We should definitely go back. I wish it wasn't so cold when we went. It would have been tons more fun. In the cabins, I learned to get a bunk in the middle. Or else you might fall off your top bunk (my bunk was by the window, and didn't have rails).
