Ms. Erica will be blogging weekly & I will be doing a monthly recap so you can see what we are doing here at !mpact.
At the beginning of September we made Time Capsules. We wanted to create something that we could look back on at the end of the year and see how much we've changed (or not!) Some of us decorated our jars, and we all put a little something inside for us to open at the end of this school year.
We also did a competition called Cupcake Wars. We split this activity up in two days. On the first day, we created our groups, came up with a plan on how our cupcakes would be decorated, then baked the cupcakes. We let them cool overnight and the next day we came together with our groups and started decorating our cupcakes. Check out our pictures! I was very impressed with how our kiddos collaborated & decorated. Our winning team was Sekacpuc (Cupcakes backwards.) They used fondant and frosting to create a unicorn, two dragons, three flowers, and a mermaid tail! Amazing!
Another competition we had was bottle flipping. Many of you know that this activity was popular a few years ago... we brought it back! We competed for the best & most unique bottle flip! Check out our video below of some of the objects we tried to land on.
Ms. Erica already blogged about Words with Friends & clay molding, but check out some more pictures in the slide show!
One of our most popular activities was wood burning. We borrowed some wood burning pens from Rocket Club and experimented with different designs & textures. We're planning on doing this activity again in October, so look for photos on our progress!
On the last day of September we made drip paint mason jars. I'm excited to see how these turn out... they're still drying! Check out our photos!
I'd say the most popular activity this month was the Marshmallow Shooters. I had a template for us to go off of, but most of our kiddos created their own design. We had marshmallows going forward, backward, up and down! We also got to try out pipe cutters. They were hard to cut so Mr. O'Neill helped us out. Check out the video below of Summer shooting her marshmallow into the air and catching it in her mouth!!
Thanks for stopping by! Come back next week & again at the end of the month to see what else we're dong at !mpact!!
