My Side of the Mountain (Whittle Lab)

The students are currently reading My Side of the Mountain. The students had the opportunity to whittle a living habitat from soap in class. The students have learned that whittling is a technique used in the wilderness to survive. In the book the main character whittled fish hooks out of tree branches in order to catch food to survive. The definition of whittle consists of cutting small bits or shavings from something else. The students had the opportunity to whittle a bar of soap using plastic knives and tooth picks. The first annual Hall of Fame of whittling is below in picture format. The end product was tremendous on all levels. Please take the time and vote on your favorite class or leave a comment. The students had a great time and there were no casualties on My Side of the Classroom. Most of the students came to the conclusion that they would not be able to survive in the wild based on their whittling skills.
