"But the other side of the world's not far!" -Giacomo
Yesterday, a few children were asked to consider, or reconsider, the so-called problem of how messages made for Cedar will go from our location, here, to Cedar, all the way in Kenya.
The pink tape was placed on the floor as a way to physically conceptualize being on two sides of one space. We played around with the idea of getting people from one point to the other by physically moving small wooden pieces, from one side to the other. Sometimes we were in America and sometimes we were on the Africa side.
Earlier in the week, ideas about how to get messages to Cedar, in Kenya, were discussed and recorded. Audrey, who loves owls, offered a new idea today about how we and/or the messages can get to the other side of the world:
"The owl could take us." -Audrey
"The owl could fly up... The owl could fly. To the sun, up..." -Audrey
"We should make wings on it." -Lucia
A Short Walk for Wood...
Elyse spotted some wood on her way to work. So we decided to spend our backwards day on a walk. Kim, Sarah, and Audrey's sister Tegan were still in our company. We gladly invited them along, and they gladly accepted. We first checked out the trucks of the tree removal company. Then we knocked on a neighbor's door, and Kim asked if the wood was available for us to have and use. It was. Thanks neighbor!
