As for this past weekend, Gabriela and I, along with kids, team managers and other parents, traveled to Sao Paulo for Destination Imagination. You can click on the name for more information. I think it is a fun and challenging activity that really shows children how to work as a group to come up with different solutions. They worked for several months on their Central Challenges, which is the main component of their total score. Once at the celebration, they present the Challenge and participate in other workshops and challenges for which they are also graded. At the end, the scores are totaled and a victor emerges....sometimes tears flow, or screams of joy erupt, but in the end, I really believe they all learn valuable lessons that they will hopefully remember as they grow older.
Our kids had a great time and did very well. Sao Paulo is a pretty, modern city with rolling hills and interesting architecture. We got to meet our blogging friend Fabiola, which was great. The three of us had a leisurely breakfast and talked each other's ears off :)
Thanks for the fun morning Fabiola!
