Bogrim enjoys Yom Pixar!
Today, Bogrim participated in a fantastic Pixar- themed yom meyuchad (special day). Chanichim completed various peulot (activities) based on Pixar movies, that all related to our educational theme of structural inequality in the United States. Our day started out strong with some Wall-E themed Nikayon, as chanichim embodied the role of the trash collecting robot as they cleaned their tzrifim (bunks).
Next, during our Up peulah (activity), chanichim (campers) built houses out of cardboard, pool noodles, trays, tape, balloons and various other materials. Through the various challenges they faced, chanichim learned about housing inequality in our country, all while having a blast! Their houses were judged on height, structural integrity and creativity. There were some incredible creations!
Next, chanichim created culinary masterpieces during Ratatouille Iron Chef. They learned about food inequality and worked together to master a budget, time crunch, and use a variety of ingredients in creating the most tasty dish possible!
After a break for aruchat tzohorayim (lunch), chanichim walked to Rondeau’s, where they enjoyed some delicious ice cream.
In the afternoon, we practiced for our machezemer (musical), Annie, and finished off our day with a rousing game of Scattergories. We had a ton of fun during Yom Pixar!!
