Fort and Movie Premiere Showcase

Hooray! We finished up our fort unit and closed it out with a party with friends and family. We learned so much about the history of forts, fort building and structures, and even illustrated our own forts in different biomes around the world. 

One part of the fort was a dugout for spying and hunting. Sy is about 2 feet below the surface. 

The three leveled fort with a dumb waiter and dugout. 

A hula hoop game was created during the party. 
We had a campfire!

The game had multilevel challenges. 

Teo up in the trees

We had PIZZA! 

The showcase also was a very special night because we had our stop motion lego animation movie premiere. This project took us awhile to complete and it was great to see the final product.  Special thanks to Emily for being our editor and film expert. It turned out great! We have a copy at the schoolhouse so feel free to stop by and watch it. 

Getting ready for the viewing.

The moment we've all been waiting for.....
