Questions to ask your Earth Art camper (Thursday)

If you’re curious about what your child has been up to in camp this week, here are some questions to get the conversation started…

  • Wednesday was cold so the group pretended we were pioneers. Why were houses typically 1 room back then? What were a few pioneer toys children played with? What did pioneers use to start fires?
  • Thursday we began our day playing a Schoolhouse of Wonder original game called Six Feathers? How do you play six feathers? What does it mean to play with honor?
  • We learned about a famous land artist named Andy Goldsworthy on Wednesday and used his works of art as inspiration for our own group installation Thursday? What was your favorite piece by Andy Goldsworthy? What materials did he use to make it? What materials did you use to make your own earth art?
