  • Mission: Control

    Prism glasses and magnetic darts

    We had so much fun with this challenge. I used special glasses from my husband's lab that skewed the kids' spatial orientation. They played darts without the glasses on and then with the glasses on. They had a third option of putting a blindfold on and spinning for another skewed spatial orientation experience. For the balance challenge, everyone enjoyed the acceleration of trying to throw while standing on a noodle.

  • Leave no man behind!

    While performing the mile run for Base Station Walk Back, two students who had already finished decided to do an extra lap to encourage a fellow student who was at the tail end. They helped him finish, thus having the entire class finish in the designated time I gave them. So proud of my little "Astronauts". They are working hard and enjoying it!

  • Mission X Newbies

    This is our first time participating in Mission X and so far the students are loving it. This week we are doing Crew Strength Training and the kids claim I am torturing them! Haha, but they are smiling the entire time! In two weeks we are going to do our annual Jump Rope for Heart and we will incorporate Jump for the Moon into our event.

  • Resource X update

    First day of mission X here at the Saturday respit for the resource center of Jamestown, NY. All the kids had a blast and completed several activities today. We learned about the importance of stretching before our challenges and made several goals to meet before the end of the challenge. A great start to the 2015 program.

  • More Tigers Crew Strength Training

    Our fourth graders got busy today improving muscular strength! They were excited to train like an astronaut by performing push-ups and squats which will help to increase their fitness test scores in the future.
