The day of the Winter Triathlon had finally arrived! After weeks of anticipation, it was time for...
The skate. The Ski. The Run.
The ongoing competition between ScienceTrek and EcoQuest would continue with the 7th Annual Winter Triathlon! The day was expected to be both competitive with others, but first-handedly ourselves. We were about to individually challenge ourselves to not only skate, but also cross-country ski and run in a triathlon-style format with pre-set heats and transitions between events. This day may have brought new experiences for you, or maybe it allowed you to put your skills and expertise to the test!
Whatever the day brought your way, share in detail both your anticipation and progress as you worked to complete the Winter Triathlon. Did you surprise yourself? Describe your emotions as you crossed the finish line and realized you had reached success! Be sure to follow proper writing structure and utilize vivid and descriptive word choice to share your experiences from the day with the reader. Please have your blog posted to your website by Monday, January 31st.
A quinzhee or quinzee is a “Canadian snow shelter that is made from a large pile of loose snow which is shaped then hollowed. A quinzee can be made for winter camping and survival purposes, or for fun.”
Congratulations! You have successfully prepared, built and enjoyed the final product of your quinzee! The process took time, hard work, determination and effort but overall, it was worth it. During the three step process, you may have experienced a variety of thoughts, feelings and emotions. Take us through your experiences at each stage of the quinzee process by expertly crafting a blog post. Your blog post must include reference to the following stages:
As you discuss each stage of the process, share with the reader your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Did building a quinzee take as much time as you thought it would? Which stage posed the most challenge? How did it feel sitting in your quinzee when it was done? What would it be like to use a quinzee for shelter during an extended period of time?
The list of questions could go on, and on… Remember to use descriptive word choice as you describe each stage. The reader should feel as though they are right there sharing in the experience with you as they read!
