Getting Ready for Voyage

We have been preparing to go on our Fall Voyage tomorrow. We got into our patrol groups and decided on a group name for each patrol. One patrol is called the Jaguars and the other is called the Star Wars Pikachus.

We also tried to do an activity called Community Sit. In this activity, each patrol gathers in a circle and then slowly moves into a seated position on each others' knees. If done correctly, the group ends up sitting down in this circle position. We worked and worked on this activity but haven't been completely successful yet. We will keep trying.

Another activity we tried was called Human Knot. This time we broke each patrol group in half so that the group would be smaller. Then we circled up and grabbed hands across the circle. Our hands were all tangled up in a knot in the center of the circle. The challenge then was to try to untangle the knot without letting go of each others' hands. We were all successful with this activity and so the next time we will try it with our whole patrol group. A few random photos of this are below - it was a little too busy during many of these activities to stop and take pictures.
