When I was 6,7,8 years old I was making mud pies, sifting through my mom’s scarf drawer and building forts out of the sofa.
Now, I know these activities are still going on today (‘cuz I have two fort-building-mud-pie-makers myself) but a whole new world of adventure has opened up since I was a kid.
After-school activities have taken on a life of their own and with the introduction of “year round school”, camp is no longer an annual event, it’s a daily one.
I’ve jumped on the bandwagon. I am now teaching “Junior Meteorology” to curious, inventive, bright-eyed elementary kids- and I love it!
In this highly-interactive camp kids are learning how to be observant; How to really notice things, like the sky’s current color, the shapes of changing clouds and the direction of the wind. These are the foundational steps to predicting weather. Doesn’t everyone really want this power for themselves?
It’s two days, six hours worth of hands-on answers to things like: Why do we not call them “Cold Air Balloons”?
Who calls what a “Willy Willy”? Which one could fit inside Apex- a hurricane or a tornado? And, What does the “Freezing Line” mean for our sledding chances?
Don’t you know someone who would fit right in with us? Tell them about our upcoming session:
December 14th & 16th
All classes are held at Kidocio on Highway 64 in Apex.
