The second graders were on a make believe field trip, out on the ocean, exploring on a fishing boat. All of a sudden, they hit a rock, and jumped ship. Luckily they were able to make it to land. Now 'stranded' on a deserted island, they had only the materials from their left over lunch bags to build hats. Today students learned that clothes are worn for more than just privacy and fashion.

The purpose of the hats was to protect them from the hot sun.
