History Explorers Camp Day 4
Campers got dirty making molds and mixing plaster to create hand-print keepsakes. Tomorrow we’ll paint the dried casts. The ancient game of marbles was a hit. Campers also enjoyed making mini-oral histories using the laptop sound recorder. In the afternoon campers made tangram sets, an ancient Chinese puzzle game, and wrote stories set in historic times (although ninjas crept into one plot-line, as they tend to do).
Campers have been busy preparing mini history exhibits about Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Elizabeth II, Laura Ingalls Wilder, knights and armor, their grandfathers’ participation in World War II, and the history of Nascar.
