Renaissance is Growing!

Our family is expanding!  Every afternoon at 1:45, we had the opportunity to do some team building with our newest students.  Students were faced with challenging tasks in groups.  They had to work together to build a shelter that fit all members of their group.  They could only use newspaper and masking tape to create a free standing shelter.  Students found this task to be difficult and really had to communicate and collaborate around many ideas to make a viable structure.  Early in the week, students built marble runs in attempt to have their marble travel down the ramp at the slowest speed, without ever touching the marble.  Students liked this challenge, and enjoyed designing different paths for their marble.  "It was like a homemade pinball machine" said Haley.
