For our sleepover, we chose the OCEAN CHALLENGE from WAGGGS, to further our learning about SDG#14: Life Below Water.
This was hilarious to watch!
Worksheet to fill out ocean locations
We just had the girls come up with as many different types of ocean life as they could!
Everyone got a chance to talk about what they like to do at oceans and lakes.
Unfortunately, it was really cold out that morning. We didn't cancel the hike--we just made sure everyone was dressed properly--with snow pants and hats and hoods and mittens) and we had our breakfast when we got back so they didn't have to take their mittens off to eat.

The more beans each girl and group tagged, the closer they were to the number. The more beans each girl and group pulled, the closer they were to the number.
While they were eating lunch, we counted up the actual number of beans. When averaging each group together so we have 14 samples, our estimate was 1566. The total number was 1577! Even though I know math and science work, it is so cool to see math and science work! (BY3#4)

We had some time to fill at the end of my activity, so I challenged them to create one sea creature with their bodies (Be-a-Shark pantomimes). This turned out cool too. (DY2#6)

11:30-12:15 Ocean Pollution skits
After a discussion about what causes ocean pollution, they came up with skits to show how pollution is bad and what changes can be made to prevent it. They always love doing skits!
