Group 1 is having so much fun traveling through the continent of South America. We watched a short video clip of Carnaval from Rio De Janeiro. Campers were intrigued by the elaborate floats and costumes. We learned that music is a huge part of South American festivities so we made our own maracas to shake at the Adventures Carnaval. Campers learned about the importance of rain sticks and had fun making and listening to the sound of their own rain sticks. Next, we read the book Come On Into The Rain Forest by Judy Nayer and learned that a large part of land in South America makes up the Rain Forest. Group 1 likes snakes so we created unique snakes with lots of different patterns. It has been fun traveling the world with your children!
