Morah Elana's Recap -

Tuesday: students were excited to receive their new Torah Books/Chumashim and they enjoyed exploring and decorating the cover.

Thursday: Students have been exploring the mitzvah of bal tashchit, and learned that it means do not destroy and do not waste. Activities included stories, crafts, write around posters and movement games. Students made trees with leaves where they shared ideas of how trees help the eco system. They also created a sculpture using recycable materials and decoded a secret message in their journals about wasting.

Morah Hadassah's Recap -

Monday: The GEO Jewish scientists are called into action again. Hoseli the Robit has been learning all about how Hashem separated the darkness from the light and created a colorful world. Unfortunately he only has black markers and wants to cheer up a sad friend. The scientists investigate what is black actually made from? Through capillary action they watch the colors of the black markers separate. Then we try to make our own black using those colors, mixed into oil and water. Lots of more fun experimenting from there.

Tuesday: our journey to Israel has started but for now life is hard in Egypt under Pharaoh, first building and then excavating some pyramids to give us some clues about what happened. It’s hard work, but lots of great discoveries are made.

Wednesday: Torah is like water and we can’t live without it. They make paintings of water with oil pastels and watercolors.

Thursday: Jewish hero of the week: Sarah. In honor of the cloud which rested over her tent we made some cloud slime and some continued to make the intricate woven bowls to represent Avrahams and Sarah’s hospitality.
