Concentrated mapreading and drawing

June 9, 2010

Bernard, 8 years old, walked the longest distance yesterday, that was his goal. Without his parents! Today it’s hot, so he wanted to do just a tiny walk. But then we gave him an ice cream and his plans started to grow again.

Deciding which direction to go.

Suzia, Jutrzenka and Amelka are going to use the fact that they have three gps-devices. They will all three make a part of the drawing, meanwhile thinking about the color they want to use.

Second day of workshop

Today it is even hotter then yesterday, 30 degrees. We decided to buy ice creams for the kids for when they return from their walk. Hope the forecasted rain will wait till after six o’clock to fall.
