continent...world. They very much enjoyed how our bullseye did not even fit on the page. We then talked about what we'd need to build a community. We had lots of conversations about corporations vs. local businesses and ventured into some discussions about the local economy. I followed up by a favorite story of mine, Roxaboxen, the story of a group of children that build a community play space in the desert. The children in this story have all of the community essentials, including a town mayor and a jail.
We then took to building. We have been building Gem Salt Bay Town. The origin of the name is that I have tons of gems in the classroom which represent our people. This has been a great project to launch our year because it has required decision-making, prioritizing needs and wants, collaboration and communication. We are building a paper community and a classroom community all at the same time. I do hope you come to see it on Tuesday at the Open House. By this time, we'll be ready to hand out brochures for our town.
