Trekkers taught UrbanPromise School students how to build a shelter with branches, leaves, vines, and leaves. Students of all ages (pre-K to 6th grade) were able to build something, and most of them were large enough for the kids to get inside! It was such a fun way to get the kids outside, and to stretch a part of the brain thats a little different.
