Discoveries: Yellow Group

by Mr. Tim Coyne 

(Olympic) Rings and Ties, to All Parts of our World!

  • For the week of July 25, our Discoveries: Yellow Group campers will focus on the meaning of the five Olympic rings, how they represent the five inhabited continents of the world (Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe) — continents united by the Olympic Games — and how the rings can inspire various projects and crafts. In addition, campers will learn about finding the five continents on maps and globes, and discussing and learning about which of our fellow campers have family ties to these other parts of our world.
  • We will also read books together, including Whoever You Are by Mem Fox and Same, Same, but Different by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw, to help us understand and recognize that although we all may have some differences, we also have many similarities which unite all of us!
