Based on a true story. On a warm June day, children wander away from their home into the deep woods and become totally lost. Luckily they meet First Nations people who teach them the skills needed to live alone. But will they ever find their way back home? Sing and play the songs, and learn the Friendship Dance. In the visual arts studio the students make quilt blocks.
