In September we celebrated healthy living with interesting activities at our Resource Centers. Our staff prepared varied learning opportunities with an eye on alternative ways to be mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy. Our super maker American Space staff prepared lots of activities for visitors to give them a chance to practice English in very exciting ways.Please see below what was on our plate for Healthy Living Month.
Tip – The project tutorial suggests we use old CD cases to make the projectors. We found them hard to cut (and a bit dangerous too), so we used acetate instead. It works beautifully!
Did you know that…?
All branches had a “did you know” poster wall with tips that went beyond common knowledge. There was a curating phase on Google drive to gather relevant pieces of information to share. The innovation department prepared eye-catching posters that were displayed around school and on our social media. Would you like to read or revisit the material? Enjoy and share.
