What a beautiful week to be outside. This week scholars were introduced to the 4 cardinal directions (North, East, South, and West). Scholars also learned how to use a compass in addition to some useful skills to help navigate through the woods. What if you were to get lost in the woods and didn't have a cell phone to help you find your way home? This fall scholars will be learning some compass, pacing, and mapping skills to help them learn the basics about orienteering. I don't want to overload scholars with too much technical stuff, so we also played with the pink Omnikin ball and ran around the gym to get some energy out.
Enjoy the weekend!
