Guardian Guild Session 2 Day 3
After Gratitude circle and the Obstacle course, we wrote the rest of our play and practiced. Then we went to Grandmother Tree to see if there was a piece of the Great Map or any new clues for our quest. First, we got the Northern piece of the Great Map from the Gnomes!!! They were thankful for all the chores we did for them so they gave us the Northern part of the Map that they were guarding. When we put it with the Eastern part of the map the center still didn't make sense where the Beaver King's flute is located so we still need the other two directions of the map (South and West). Grandmother Tree also told us that the Water Spirits that keep the water flowing and clean heard about our quest and wanted to help us. They gave us a letter telling us about Beatrice Bird who guards the Southern part of the map. They told us how she needed help because her wing was hurt and she can't get to any water to drink it. They gave us a puzzle image that we had to put together to know where to go to next. We had to put together 4 puzzles to find Beatrice Bird's nest! Then the Guardians had to figure out how to get the bucket of healing water (they put healing, happy thoughts into the water) up to her nest so she could drink it and get better. After helping Beatrice bird, we went back to our camp circle to have snack and water break. Then we learned about Native plants and trees and went on a scavenger hunt to see how many we could find. We also had 15 minutes of Freemaker Time ( I let the kids use any of my materials to create whatever they want). Then we ate lunch and went to the creek. We explored as far as we could go until the trees blocked the creek. We found racoon tracks! We also made a new swinging vine and after I tested it out, each explorer got a couple times to swing on it. Then our Costumer Lucy helped us create and pick out costumes for our play.
