The Invention of Language

Wow! What a week!  We learned about the history of language and the vast number of languages spoken throughout time and around the world.  Then the Sprout kids got to work and invented their own languages.

Today’s class had never heard of curling, and had some ideas of the ski jump and the luge! Now they are versed on the science behind these fantastic sports 😀 here are our Sprout Olympic Games!

Sprout Winter Olympics

After learning about a few winter sports and how science plays a strong role in each sport, the sprout Kids played “ski jump,” table top”curling,” and ice luge.

They tried and re-evaluated techniques after each try. Best times and distances were taken and medals were given out!
