Wow! It was a busy day. We had three special events today and we learned so much!
Siena shared a very local article all about Mikaela Shiffrin's win this past weekend at the World Cup. She won by 3 seconds. A new record she broke (standing since 1968). She's only 20 years old and from Vail. Many of us even got to meet her.
Otis challenged us to make a bouncy ball out of granulated polymer (looks like salt). Turns out it's super easy to make one and really fun too. We had a lot of different ideas about what would happen, but none of us thought it would bounce! So cool!
Last but not least, Rachel's mom came in and read a fabulous story about a dragon. The book, Not Your Typical Dragon, is all about a young dragon who is supposed to be able to blow fire when he turns 7. Instead he can blow just about everything else (band-aids, water, whipped cream...). He saves the day when he puts out his dad's fire. Turns out were' all a little special in our own way and that's a great thing to celebrate. Thanks Kristin!
