We arrived at the museum early to set up the game we had planned. I had designed a Wildlife Trivial Pursuit game to review the different parts of the contest.
The other 4Hers arrived and they were wound up with excess energy! I did another review of the grasses as they came into the classroom. Then we split up into teams with the challenge to gain all the color pie pieces just as the original game is played. We could hardly get them to stay quiet to read questions throughout the hour. The group did a great job answering the questions but we ran out of time before we could finish the game! An hour is just not long enough to play that game, but the museum was closing!
We went outside for the remaining time. I was able to review the new format of the contest (mainly additional questions added to each section due to the elimination of the compass). Then came the surprise...
It was Taylor's birthday and his parents asked us to celebrate with him! We sang happy birthday and enjoyed cupcakes. It was a nice impromptu celebration. We were glad to share the special time with him.
