This week, we arrived to opening circle to see another note from the wood gnomes! This time, in lieu of written instructions, the wood gnomes left a series of compass degrees to follow. After sharing gratitudes, the herons centered around compass veteran Jack to learn how to use the tool.
Splitting into two groups, the herons took two different directional paths laid out by the wood gnomes. Each correct turn was indicated by a bandana. These bandanas contained yet another surprise challenge: disparate parts of a story that the herons had to work in a group to put in order at the completion of the compass challenge.
After our adventure, we played by the swamp and pond- catching frogs and exploring the area!
