Wonderful Water June Day 4
First, we took turns with Archery and then we played a team building game called "Crossing the River". After our first hike, we recorded the results from our water pollution experiment. We concluded that polluted water decreases the capillary uptake of plants. Then we performed "Hummingbirds and the Selfish Fox". Then we discussed colored lakes. We talked about why Lake Natron and others have strange colors (mostly due to minerals and bacteria). After that, we made a Solar Still in the ground to collect fresh water to drink. There won't be any water until tomorrow. After snack, we did Suminagashi painting (floating ink painting). Then we went to visit the new guinea hen chicks on our way to the shoals part of the creek again. We also picked and ate blueberries and blackberries.
