Above and Below Week 5 Day 4
We started with a discussion of 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, we hiked to the creek but it was flooded so I couldn't let them play in it and we went back to the art studio. They had lunch and added more to their original play. Then they designed and built a puff mobile for our wind engineering challenge. The challenge was as follows: Using only the materials available (recycled cardboard, tape, straws or skewers, lifesavers, plastic bags, paper towels), build a puff mobile that can travel 4 feet in as few puffs as possible. First place was in one puff, and 5 tied for 2 puffs. Lastly, we rehearsed movements and lines for their play. Reminder that they will perform tomorrow at 2pm (pick up time). Sorry I didn't take many pictures today due to the constant rain.
