PBL9 Hosts Old School Field Day for Wyncote Third Graders
On Thursday, Oct. 10, the freshman Project Based Learning cohort (PBL9) visited Wyncote Elementary School and facilitated an old school field day for the third graders. The activities were reimagined versions of games from ancient times like “Bunnies and Bobcats,” “Panda Hockey,” “Microrush” and “Chunkey Monkey,” but had to incorporate an animal adaptation. The essential question driving this project was “Why change?” Students researched how ancient games changed over time, as well as how animals have changed and evolved over time to survive. The end goal was to create a game that was new and innovative, and would hopefully stand the test of time.
