Above and Below Day 4
After Gratitude Circle, we started with a game of “A Great Wind Blows for Anyone Who…”.Then we discussed what causes wind, tornadoes, hurricanes, dust devils, monsoons. Then they played Charades and acted out one of the vocabulary terms we talked about for their team to guess. After snack, and obstacle course, they designed and built a puff mobile for our wind engineering challenge. The challenge was as follows: Using only the materials available (recycled cardboard, plastic, tape, rubberbands, straws or skewers, lifesavers, plastic bags), build a puff mobile that can travel 4 feet in as few puffs as possible. First place was tied with two puffs. Then we had lunch, went to the creek. At the creek Henry found a Dobsonfly larvae and a Greenbriar Tuber that looked like a huge caterpillar! HAH! Lastly, we rehearsed movements and lines for their play. Reminder that we perform tomorrow at 2pm (pick up time).
