‘Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire’
- William Butler Yeats
I am not sure if this is what Mr. Yeats meant but this is definitely how our Outdoor Education class interpreted it! After studying concepts such as tinder, and kindling; making their own firestarters out of dryer lint and Cheetos. As well as learning different fire building techniques and their responsibility to the environment, students went outside and showed off their skills. The popcorn was delicious, too bad there were no hotdogs. Maybe next time!
