The entry event was a 'capture the flag' scavenger hunt. Students had to read a map of the playground to find clues and answer their clue about land forms. The final clue led each group to the power pole on our playground that raised some concerns.
Standing by the pole, students were able to examine the problem of the leaning power pole and the erosion of the hill.
