A glimpse of Marcie’s project based after school enrichment curriculum from this week (K-3). Learning about natural resources and making animals to gather around a waterhole, constructing homemade kites through trial and error, and turning ourselves into bugs after a rousing discussion about how ants cooperate to build bridges, tunnels, and rafts.
(Above Left) We had an invasion of red ants, pollen eating bees, and some winged creatures! (Above Right) Flying in a video game is easy….Now let’s get something homemade off the ground!
(Above) Literacy Connection: The Water Hole by Graeme Base, and some non-fiction resources. All this made in 45 minutes!
What a creative group!
Join us on August 16 for a summer afternoon of fun with local West Enders and neighboring friends and family. Our 2014 festival theme encourages a healthy future and community by emphasizing health and fitness at a grassroots level – OUR CHILDREN! This year’s festival will include food, prizes, games and activities that promote healthy living both from a nutrition and fitness perspective. As always, everything at the West End Children’s Festival is completely FREE of charge!
