Winter Camp--Done!

Well, as I feared, MS Movie maker failed to export our second film, Ghost Story, so it languishes in msmm format on my classroom computer.

So instead, I'll post some photos from the previous two weeks, during which I did Detective Camp (5th and 6th graders) and Toys & Games Camp (3rd graders). First, being detectives:

In Toys and Games, we had a Scottish Highland games lesson, wherein we made up our own contests of strength and also played Maide Leisg, or the "lazy stick" game:

We had our own Olympics; we learned how to play flick football and three-penny hockey; we played Scrabble Jr, Boggle, and Go Fish; we made our own mancala sets out of egg cartons and learned how to play:

We also made three kinds of paper airplane, constructed our own duck calls and had a contest to see who could build the tallest tower out of straws:

A good time, but quite a lot of work!
