Scavenger Hunt – Follow the String

We went on another adventure today!  Our class started as we heard a voice from the hall asking if we wanted to follow the string.  (I had set up my speaker just outside the classroom door and had prerecorded a video asking if they wanted to follow the string).  And just like that we were...

Students smashed down rocks (I used lava rocks) with the hammers and then grinded them down further in a mortar and pestle.  The...
