Today in Advisory the students taped red yarn on a world map that connected their country to a card on the wall with their name and the name of the city and country that is represented by their clay pot. The clay pots are located in the window above. We should begin to see germination around Tuesday. So far the local weather in these countries has been rain, mist or snow.
We also had pink cupcakes for Valentine's Day and played a game simulating a snowball fight (wadded up paper) since we were getting the first of seven inches of snow.
