SC 2019 Week 4 Discoveries Blue Group Update

This week, the Blue Group ventured into Our Future World! The campers learned how to use patterns and their number sense to understand the world around them. They were able to make connections to patterns inside and outside the classroom. The campers used their knowledge of patterns to make predictions about the weather and gain more insight about animals and the natural world. As the week progressed, the campers extended their knowledge about patterns and building structures. While building with legos and K’nex pieces, the campers further developed their problem solving and communication skills. The campers also worked in partnerships to construct musical instruments, miniature houses, vehicles, and animals. After virtually returning back to the year 2019, the campers considered which jobs they might pursue in the future. On career day, the Blue Group campers came to Summer Connections dressed as an array of occupations, including a prima ballerina, a movie director, a veterinarian, a dentist, a doctor, a Taekwondo instructor, and a member of the SWAT team to name a few! Next week, the campers will learn about Our World Beyond (Space & Solar Systems).
