I have been in Learnng places for almost three years now.This semester in Learning places has been better than i thought it would be. Coming into the fall/spring semester i had my doubts about if it would be fun or boring. I was concerned about all the supervisor changes that our group has been going through, and i wondered if they could fill Gywanna's spot. I have come to like all three of our supervisors.
Our new supervisors have made this semester very fun and interesting for us. We have done some things i didnt think we would do like make glass jewlery or and have very interesting people come in to talk to us about alot of things. I think that they try to keep us entertained. We learned about inquiry and teamwork alot because that is what our group needs to know to have a successful summer.
At the beginning we were put into groups and assigned one of our community organizations. Our task was to design the space we were given by that organization to fit a science theme that we picked. i was put into the Christian Services group with Ariel. First we sat down and decieded what we wanted the room to look like and what we wanted in it. We had to draw what we want each wall to look like and present to Christian services. They loved it so we were happy. We went to Home Depot and picked out colors and building material. Im excited to see what the final result is.

In the past few weeks we have learned all about sand! We played in it,made our own, and and even had a man come in and teach ous about glass. today we did an activity where we got to make our own piece of glass jewlery. We also did an activity where we had to find thind buried in sand and piece the clues together to sove a murder. Today was fun and educational.
