This Week's Activities
DI is in full swing! The kids are creating, writing, sewing, gluing, cutting, painting and yes, on occasion arguing. It is a wonder to watch! I think you will understand what I mean when you see the pictures below!
We are spending every minute of our time (except for our 15 minute break) working on the solutions for this year's challenge. This year's Rising Stars challenge is called Change in Direction. Here is an overview of the tasks that the kids are required to complete.
TEAM CHALLENGE OVERVIEW: Your team is heading off on a journey. Where are you going? What if, at some point, you make a change in direction? Why did you change direction? Where are you going now? Are you going to the same place using a new path or are you going to a different place? With the help of your team-created map, the choice is yours. Tell us a story about your journey. The story should have a beginning, middle and end. With a team-created map, complete with a compass rose and map key, show us your path. At some point, your characters should decide to change their direction. At least two characters should have different ideas or feelings about this change in direction. Show us how your characters, with the use of your map, decide on a new direction to go.
Between the 4 grade levels there are 4 teams competing.
Goldilocks and the Mindblasters- 3rd and 4th grade
The Wolves- 3rd and 4th grade
The Smarties and Dum-dums- 5th grade
The Squigets-6th grade
The Princess and the Peas-6th grade
Ask your child about their team and how they are solving the challenge!
