Indoor Picnic

Rain can’t stop an Ozone picnic. Children enjoyed watermelon and more on our picnic blankets and then played indoor cornhole for the rest of the day.

Catapult Competition

Students worked together to build catapults with supplies purchased at the Ozone store using special Ozone dollars. After the catapults were completed, they competed for best distance and accuracy.

Yarn Trip

Ozone knitters visited Crystal Lake to help decorate for last weekend’s Hooked on Newton: A Public Fiber Art Project, sponsored by the Newton Festival of the Arts.

Geocaching in Webster Woods

Students on the Comets and Ozone programs ventured into Webster Woods for some geocaching. Using a GPS, and geocaching app, students discovered two caches and replaced the prizes in each one.

Rubik’s Cubexperts

Several other 4th and 5th graders are close to being added to the list. The next challenge for students is to solve the Rubik’s Cube without any help from a teacher. Salome was the first to accomplish this goal. Fifth grader Sophie S. was the next person to solve it without any teacher help. She then proceeded to solve 5 more Rubik’s Cubes.

Meanwhile, most teachers are still trying to solve their first side.

Rubik’s Cube Challenge

Yesterday, 4th and 5th graders began the Rubik’s Cube challenge. About 20 students started the challenge, 7 students made enough progress that they decided to save their work, and 1 child solved her Rubik’s Cube today.

4th grader, Salome, was our first student to solve a Rubik’s Cube at BASCP. We are hoping she will now coach others to solve the cube along with Jordan, who was out first teacher to solve it.

Giant Bananagrams

Because Banagrams has been very popular in the Ozone this year, Jordan created a giant game to be played outside (and inside when it won’t stop raining). The giant game involves more teamwork and exercise than the original game.
