Session 6, Week 2, Year 2
This week, the learners will travel 200,000 years ago to the first humans and continue traveling to about 30,000 years ago in order to learn about life as a hunter-gatherer and how humans used energy from the sun to fuel their bodies.
They will become hunter-gatherers in Africa and must complete a series of challenges set up like a scavenger hunt to see if you could survive!
Goals are a staple of project planning. They give the Eagles a long term vision, motivation and focus needed to complete whatever they’ve set out to achieve. Currently, we have Eagles working on robots, canons, slingshots, etc... They will be demonstrating their finished project on Exhibition!
This session, the focus trait will be word choice. The learners will work on using thoughtful adjectives, they’ll learn about metaphors and similes, and learn how to use interesting, not predictable words to keep the audience hooked. The sub-skills of word choice are:
The Eagles are loving learning their languages! They have moved onto phrases and starting to have conversations with their language partners!
The Eagles sets goals every day for their core skills. We have meetings in the circle about what they didn't accomplish and attempt to identify why (the group helps brainstorm solutions to any roadblocks). One of our Eagles finally passed his roadblock and completed level 2 math! The Eagles celebrated and were inspired to never give up! Congrats Jace!
We celebrated one of our Eagles birthday with some king cake to start off the Mardi Gras spirit! Happy Birthday Jabu!
