The class: Outdoor Education. The challenge: to create an outdoor hand-washing station using everyday things you can find in your home.
In this video, our outdoor ed teacher Mr. Neale shows middle school students how he created a simple apparatus you can use to wash your hands when camping, on a kayaking trip, or at the beach.
Create a portable and water friendly wash station for field trips and camping trips.
Bucket or wash tub
16 oz plastic cup ( yogurt cup)
24 inches of string
12 inches of wire (coat hanger)
A nail or screw for making holes in cup
3 sticks 48 inches long or longer, broomstick size
The featured image at the top of this post shows the handmade station created by 6th Grade student Zoe at home! Nice work.
