For the second week of the Summer in the City Camp, the theme was Round and Round. Classes worked on all kinds of activities about “round” things. Some groups looked at sports and soccer  (the week of the World Cup final). Yellow made their own soccer balls (“Buckyballs”) out of posterboard.

Orange, Red and Yellow groups worked on making mandalas with the colors of flags of the countries participating in the World Cup. They also learned new dances like the Chicken Dance and the Twist.

The Orange and Red groups were in charge of making healthy snacks. They made fruit kebabs that everyone enjoyed. The high school students had another visit from some American high school students and they practiced English and Spanish together. On Friday the camp went on a field trip to the Telefonica Museum, where the kids learned about the evolution of the phone through time.
