Homework Assignment #3

Graded in two categories:

1) I did as much of this preparation as possible on my own.

2) I checked the list and can demonstrate detailed, careful packing.

Please share a picture to show your work. Homework is due by 7:30 PM on Monday, 6/13.

Please think about what you need to be comfortable and prepared for camping and time outdoors by the water. What should be in your backpack? Do you have two big water bottles? Do you have a plan to keep your skin protected from sun? Which is better, a hat and long-sleeved shirt or a bottle of sunscreen?

Bonus points if you can think of preparation that will help everyone have fun and feel great. For example, Ethan found a cool frisbee for the water and we have lots of extra PFD’s and tents in case someone doesn’t have his/her own.

Please use this picture as an example. This is Mr. Ben’s, Ethan’s and James’ gear already packed. There are some things not pictured because they are already at school. Let’s put them in the trailer tomorrow and think ahead about packing on Tuesday morning! On the 1-4 grading scale, I would give Ethan a 4 on both grading categories. And because James is six, he would be graded on an adjusted scale. He gets a 4 in category one and a 2 in category 2. 😂

Can‘t wait!!
