Road Rally!

1 Comment


After all of the hard work creating our eclectic vehicles, we simply had to host a rally. Last week’s introduction to road signs provided us with the perfect inspiration to create our own road worthy signs.  Once constructed, a lovely chalk road and parking lot provided a backdrop for our debut.  As you will see in the slide show and video, the children certainly persevered, thought flexibly, made connections (one child finally did realize that holes for her legs were required to make the vehicle “drivable”), used critical thinking to decide how to make their car/plane/train move, took on a myriad of challenges, and were obviously participating in self-directed, engaged learning.
