It was our first rainy and chilly week at forest school so it was the perfect time to learn about fire. We learn about how to call Fire using the traditional bow drill method, then learn about how to feed a baby fire until it is strong enough to eat bigger and bigger pieces of wood. How do we take care of fire? What does it need? And how does it take care of us?These are big questions that we explore in our fire curriculum.
Then we celebrated our hard work making fire and processing acorns, by making acorn pancakes on the fire! Thanks to our parent community for providing delicious toppings and to our students for making such good acorn flour.
