This week, students in 4th/5th grade have been finishing up their "trip" to Costa Rica. One of our last lessons involved a challenge day! On these days, students are given the challenge to complete a task in a certain amount of time (and of course communicating only in Spanish). These days are really fun but very challenging as well. On this day, students learned how ziplining is one of the most popular activities for tourists in Costa Rica. This is because ziplining originated there! Students were introduced to ziplining vocabulary in Spanish along with the different types that exist. The challenge was to build their own zipline out of straws, popsicle sticks, paper and string. The object was to get their zipliner from one end to the other. It was amazing to see what they come up with. Check out the pictures below to see!
