If you’ve never been camping and enjoyed s’mores, add that to your bucket list. Here’s my latest contribution to the “Tell A Story in 5 Photos for Educators” Flickr group, using a few images from our family adventures in the Pecos wilderness the past few days.
While our family DOES own some wire marshmallow roasting sticks, which make the process of cooking s’mores a bit easier, we are definitely NOT going to invest $13 a pop on Spinmallow electric rotating sticks. We saw these for sale today in Pecos, New Mexico. Perhaps something like this appeals to campers who yearn for something electronic in their hands, when they leave the remote control at home, but personally I think this is ridiculous.
I’ll be sharing a few more photos and videos from our recent trip to New Mexico amidst other slides, stories, and ideas this week in Canyon ISD, Texas. Consider using the “tell a story in 5 photos” lesson idea with your own students this year – It’s a great way to emphasize digital literacy and visual storytelling. My s’more contribution this evening makes the 70th example in our Flickr group, which you’re welcome to join!
