Flowers, Games, and Bridges

Friday was a pretty special day. Everyone brought in a pile of games, and before we had to do any organizing, the kids had jumped in. We played: Exploding Kittens, Number Zingo, Hiss, Spot It, Chutes and Ladders, How to Train Your Dragon, Dice Miner, Invasion of the Cow Snatchers, Tumbling Tower, Eye Found It, Charades, and Twister. Kids helped teach the rules (or occasionally made up new rules) to each other, took turns, discussed disagreements about the game, and did their best to be gracious winners and losers (in the games where that was relevant). They discussed probability, thought about strategies, counted, added, subtracted, read cards, and built skills. But mostly they had lots and lots of fun!

We also planted our zinnias in the pollinator gardens in Middleburgh, visited the library, created a whole new plant (and its windborne seed), and made a rope bridge!

  • Solved mazes and missing numbers on a 100's chart puzzles.

  • Measured (in seconds) different modes of moving across a room (not surprisingly running was the fastest).
