Our Shelter Building Incursion provides an opportunity for students to develop their team building skills by working towards the common goal of building a strong outdoor shelter. This shelter must protect their whole group from the harshest weather conditions!
Students will learn about various types of human-made and natural shelters and discover how fit for purpose they are. Not only that, students will be required to design their shelter so that it works within their budget and considers various design elements including suitability of materials. Students will need to use their Shelter Building money wisely and brainstorm needs vs wants as well as working out refunds and exchanges. This requires communication, negotiation and team work to complete the task. This team based incursion is lots of outdoor fun for everyone!
As with all our Incursions, Australian Curriculum links are available here on the website. We also provide many classroom resources so that the learning can continue back in the classroom.
