If I Had a Strange Material, what would it be and what would I make out of It?
A boat, bed, and tent
I chose a raft as the first thing to make. Why, because the sea was calm, and the supply of Pine tree boards and Pine tree firs were very plenty. Therefore I could easily make a little raft on the ship and sail to the little island. I could not repair the craft, therefore to make a raft would be one of the only options.
I went into the storage cabin, which was half-filled with water, and took a hammer, two thin boards for paddles, some nails, and Pine tree firs and boards. So I began making the raft. I took some big boards, and laid them side by side. Then, I nailed them together, and by repeating this operation, I soon got the sturdy square base of my raft. Next, I nailed some boards unto the sides of my raft which were upright. These were to serve as walls to keep off a little bit of water, moreover, to keep me from slipping off the sides of the rude craft I had made. I added more boards to the bottom and the sides, and stacked it full of Pine tree firs; it sweet smelling. Finally I added a bit of cloth to make it comfortable. Then, I went out on the boat, on the ocean, and to the Island.
After a peaceful and fun trip on the ocean, I arrived on land. I noticed that the island had abundant fruit trees, and plenty of refreshing streams of water. There were also distant mountains, so if I was with my family, and if the boat was supposed to stop there, I might have throughly enjoyed the background. The first thing I did, was to pray. Next, I decided to then make a little sign that somebody was shipwrecked on an island. All I did was take my paddle, and stick it the sand. Then I took a life preserver I wore and stuck it on top of the pole. After eating clams that I found on the shore and some coconuts thrown to me by monkeys, I decided to make a little bed; it was almost night time. The Bed was very easy to make. All I did was use 4 long Pine tree boards, and nailed them together side by side. Then, I made short walls, and in the inside of bed, I laid a lot of Pine tree firs. As it was now a little bit spiky, I added a little bit of cloth that was on my raft before.
The Island was well laid out with trees, streams, and mountains. There was a lot of different types of plants, and I saw that if I chose a place by the mountains, rivers, and trees, it would be AWESOME! So I decided to make a tent.
I began making the little tent by taking five Pine tree boards. I laid them in a tent like fashion, making two triangles, and connecting them together with another Pine tree board. Next, I laid some other boards on as to make a slanted roof. There was roof for my little Pine tree bed in the tent, and also a little leftover space!
I chose my strange material as a Pine tree, because using a Pine tree, you can meet many of your life's needs. Like having a shelter, reaching land, sleeping on dry, comfortable beds, and all sorts of things. The Pine tree is very useful.
