The students built a card board, balloon operated car and built a cushion type barrier to protect an egg. In groups of two they devised an elaborate machine to knock down the “Albert Einstein.” On Friday they built a catapult.. In Animation their ingenuity continued and they created Environmental PSA‟s using Flux Time Studio, an online based animation program. They also created mini animations in Animationish. They started the week by making and drawing their own Flip Books. In Brain Pop they learned about Traditional Animation vs Digital Animation. It has been a very production week for these young inventors/animators. To view the animation videos please check out: Millhoppertech.com, click: Summer Camp, then click: Animation

We had a blast this week, making masks, treasure maps and singing pirate songs. “Argh!”

Ms. Crystal

Our dress up day on Thursday was filled with many colorful characters! The fun continues next week…. Shiver Me Timbers! Our push pin parrots came to life this week, as we studied all about the pirate world! Our treasure maps were a lot of fun. Perhaps it will take you to find a hidden treasure! The students enjoyed the adventures of the Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon. Next week our enrichment theme Ms. Liz continues.

Recycled Arts and Crafts Recycling, Recreating, Redesigning, Reconstructing, Reusing! This week the crafty students of the Recycled Art Summer Camp created bowls out of magazines, sculpted their own paper, made robots, jewelry and key chains out of magazines and bottle tops, and so much more. “My favorite part of camp was making a bowl out of a magazine,” one student said. Way to save our environment crafters!
