Super Scientist Camp
We all had a great week at camp. The children were very busy and the days went quick! It was nice to see the children forming new friendships at camp too. The children took part in experiments, activities, art and play that demonstrated basic scientific facts. We read And Then Comes Summer by Tom Brenner, Annie Bananie by Leah Komaiko, Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni, Froggy Builds a Treehouse by Jonathan London, What Makes a Shadow by Robert Bulla and My Shadow by Rachel Mitchell.
