This weekend my son and I attended the 33rd annual Trappers’ Rendezvous near Newton, Kansas, along with about 4500 others. I created the following as a new entry in the “Tell a Story in 5 Pictures for Educators” Flickr group, using five of the 165 photos I published this afternoon after we returned. Alexander found an abandoned deer leg (strangely a popular item to trade among the Boy Scouts present) and “traded it up” for turkey feathers and then a railroad spike. The resident blacksmith graciously turned it into a hook, suitable for impersonating Captain Hook at an upcoming Halloween party or other similar festive occasion.
The hook was certainly a better souvenir of the weekend to bring home than a deer leg!
Please join and submit your own entries to “Tell a Story with 5 Photos for Educators!” I’m sharing this open project (among many other things) tomorrow for teachers in Frontier Public Schools (Oklahoma) in a presentation I’ve titled, “Quick Victories for 1:1 Classrooms.”
H/T to Marco Torres for the term “Quick Victories” used in this context.
