Orcs, Swords, and Spiders...
We started the day with a game I made up called 'Hobbit Mash Up'. The orc and goblins were 'it'. Once tagged by them students were frozen and could only be saved by Gandalf. Meanwhile there were designated 'spiders'. There job was to tag people and wrap them in their web (which was really a parachute).
Golem also made an appearance (she forgot to tuck her hair in) and handed out rings and asked a couple riddles.
It is so exciting to see how students use and transform the materials I set out and show them how to use. They always create things and make choices I never would have thought of !
Everyone continued forging their swords today. Some started transforming them with spray paint. Others continue to craft theirs.
Students continued their hard work in the mines the rest of the day. Finishing up or starting new projects, visiting about books and movies, and enjoying themselves.
