Interims for Traditional K-5 Students
Heads UP - Cardboard Challenge is just around the corner!
Here's what you need to know!
We plan to have the event (weather permitting) on the old Peaceful Playground - flat area near cottages. In the event of rain, teachers will use their classrooms and hallways. Grades 4-5 will use gym. There will be no specials on this date and lunch schedules will be altered.
8:00-9:45 - Plan and Build
9:45 - 10:00 - Clean Up
10:00-10:30 - Museum Walk
11:30-1:15 - Plan and Build
1:15-1:30 - Clean Up
1:30-2:00 - Museum Walk
What's your role?
Solicit volunteers to help with your class during your time.
Inform parents that duct tape would be helpful - Encourage children to bring whatever supplies you'd like them to have access to. The cardboard will be provided.
Thanks to PTA, cardboard is being handled. They have also bought every child a pair of blue/white sunglasses as part of the event. You will need to make sure you use Sharpies to put their names on them. They will also be providing volunteers to main supply stations and keep things organized.
You might want to consider having children plan their designs ahead of time so that they don't need to do that on the day of the event.
We are excited to encourage another day of exploring creativity!
