When was the last time you built a fort?

When I grew up we made forts and dug around in the mud. Students are spending less time outside and doing activities that get their hands dirty. Make a place where students can go outside and build with sticks, twigs, and dirt.

Oh my YES! Trever, you're on a roll! My city tried this experiment this summer in creating pop-up adventure playgrounds (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/mobile-adventure-playground-calgary-1.3770475) which I think totally fit with your vision. 

There is SO much potential to make in nature. What sorts of activities do you imagine your students doing in their outdoor makerspace?
