Week 25 (2017) – Heroes of the Faith Quest Wrap-up

Today was a day of reflection and celebration at Journey Academy!
Our heroes agreed that yesterday’s Exhibition has been their favorite yet! ? While some of them said they felt rushed to prepare the week leading up to it, others commentated that they had more than enough time to prepare. Those who agreed they had felt rushed recognized that they can use their time more wisely next session by staying focused during project time, turning things in by the milestone dates for the quest, and holding each other accountable when things start to get off-task. All of the heroes agreed that they would like to run next session’s Exhibition, as it gave them a greater sense of ownership this session.
 To end the day, our heroes came up with a fun challenge for everyone to try over break. To encourage curiosity, our heroes are going to come up with a question they want to explore (it can be related to an experiment they want to try, finding which April Fool’s tricks will work on various people, etc..). After they explore their curiosity, they will share what they learn at our opening launch after break!
Hope you have a wonderful Spring Break! See you back soon!???
