Week 2 of our Summer Enrichment Camps are in the books… and what an exciting (and scary) week it was! The Campers at both sites have been sharing their thoughts, feelings, and activities throughout the week on our Twitter feed and on our Facebook page.
Week 2 in Windsor: Eco-Explorers
During the week, the campers practiced their literacy, math, and adaptive technology skills using the computers, iPads, Smart Board, and playing various games. They went on nature walks, researched their favourite animals, learned about fossils, took pictures with some scary animals (i.e. snacks and spiders), and at the end of the week they put all of their accomplishments into a scrapbook.
The theme for next week’s Summer Enrichment Camp in Windsor is the Amazing Race World Challenge.
Week 2 in Windsor: Lights, Camera, Action!
During the week, the campers practiced their literacy, math, and adaptive technology skills using the computers, iPads, Smart Board and playing various games. They practiced their persuasion skills by making a commercial for the item of their choice (See Sample 1 and Sample 2). They also got to practice their creative writing and acting skills by making movie trailers using iMovie on the iPad. Scary movies were a hit, with 3 out of the 4 movie trailers having a scary theme. On the last day, the campers got to watch a movie while eating popcorn.
The theme for next week’s Summer Enrichment Camp in Essex is the Wacky World of Science.
