After a week of non-stop rain, my kids and I had had enough of each other with inside recess. Friday afternoon came and I couldn’t squeeze another ounce out of them.
We had just built bottle biology terrariums which also meant afterwards was not going to be productive.
Recess came and we started talking about our class mascot, Daisy, and imagining if she was an ‘eco-warrior’ protecting out little eco-systems in our bottles.
We brainstormed a few ideas just before recess and then decided to film and edit. To my surprise, we put it together pretty quick. I was on the controls but I had 8 back seat drivers telling me what to do!
It makes me think of other ways I can use this next year as a creative tool, end of book club celebration or as a culmination of thinking from a science or social studies unit.
