It was a different week, but I know that the Falcons made the best of it. Last week the team found and solved a word puzzle, guided a marble down a series of pipes, and battled in a balloon version of Steal-the-Sticks.
To begin, the Falcons had to put their puzzle-solving skills to work. Given tricky clues, they had to find letters throughout the woods to come up with their word, “WONDERS.” Thanks to everyone’s fantastic eyesight, they were able to find the letters easily, however, making the word was the hardest part.
Isa’s intelligence came in handy as she and her teammates worked through all of the possibilities and made the correct word!
Next, we moved onto the marble game. Each Falcon had their own piece of pipe and had to watch a marble roll down their pipes. Here’s the catch, whenever the marble went down the player’s pipe, they had to run to the end of the line and align their pipe with another player in order to make the assembly line long enough to reach the finish.
Nolan’s height and Ava’s problem-solving was a big help to the team’s success.
For our final game, we ran back to the Confederation Trail and played a game of Steal-the-Sticks with balloons. Teammates hid their balloons alongside the trail in hope that the opposing team wouldn’t find them.
With our game resulting in a tie, it was obvious that both teams had excellent hiding spots and worked flawlessly as a team.
In the end, although the challenges were difficult, the Falcon’s knew how to tackle them. It was awesome to see the team come together to solve the puzzle, navigate problems during the Marble Race, and compete in a game of Steal-the-Sticks.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Teddy took over the Foxes and Ravens last week. However, that won’t stop us from having fun with our challenges this week!
Yours in adventure,
Sarah, Georgia, Sophie, and Mr. Paton
