Learners need to move

By moving, children learn more.  Rae Pica in her article In Defense of Active Learning in The Huffington Post wonders why schools are organized around children sitting most of the day.  

Not so, Parker!  Watch children and their natural inclinations: running, swinging, jumping, climbing, and an ebb and flow of social interaction. Harnessing this energy into learning situations gives students a real edge.

Campers are learning this week about Survival, 3D design, and dinosaurs.  It's pretty active!
