Mountains in Clouds

June 13-17 Day 5

We started the day with a game of Kubb (a Swedish game where teams try to knock down the other side's wooden blocks first) and 6 Men's Morris (based on 9 Men's Morris from Shakespeare). Then we went to the art studio and talked about Greece. We looked at all the different urns they use for different purposes and then made Urn Scratch Art (oil pastels with acrylic paint over it then using a skewer scratched a design for an urn). After snack and practicing their play, we went to Italy and talked about Leonardo Da Vinci. We looked at some of his inventions and built our own catapults to test out with paper balls. We had a short contest for those interested to try and use their catapult to shoot the farthest. Next we ate lunch and went to the creek to cool off and play. Lastly, they performed their original play "The Shadow Amulet".
