Our first mission was to rescue Mrs. Elder from an alien abduction! Aliens from outer space took Mrs. Elder and held her captive until we paid the ransom. We had to gather different school supplies that were hidden around the room. But these weren't just any old school supplies - they were hidden in envelopes around the room, and we had to solve the clues to find them. I LOVED watching everyone work together to solve the puzzles and answers the questions. We had 45 minutes to get Mrs. Elder back, and we saved her with 30 seconds to spare!
Our next task was to build a spaghetti and marshmallow tower. We split off into groups of 4 and were given 1 serving of uncooked spaghetti noodles and 2 giant marshmallows. The mission was to build the tallest tower. Congratulations to Brett, Easton L, Logan, and Laney for build a 19 inch tower!
We ended our day by saving our new friend, Fred the worm. His boat tipped over and his life jacket was stuck under the boat. Since Fred is a worm and can't swim, it was up to us to help him get home safely. But we could only help him get his life jacket back by using paper clips instead of our hands. Almost every student was able to rescue Fred successfully!
We ended the day helping Audrey celebrate her birthday! The cupcakes she brought to share were absolutely delicious and hit the spot right before we jetted outside for a quick recess!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I can't wait to see you on Monday morning!
