Dancing fools is what these Wildcats are! They all love to dance and sing and knowing the music really helps. The run through today went great! The group is really enjoying this production. Bet you can’t wait to see it! The theater group met up with the bus rides at Holloway commons and enjoyed a great lunch together. Then group one headed over to Lord Hall, where Julia had us all outside for some parachute games. Then Ben led us in some really fun handshakes and silly games such as starfish tag and marathon. I think we really wore out these guys because when it came to class time everyone was really quiet. The group learned about hurricanes with Sheana then built homes and had a hurricane come try and blow it down with her leaf blower. The class focused on the 5 stages of hurricanes as well as the weight of a rain cloud and what the eye of the hurricane looks like. Group two was over at New Hampshire hall where they danced and did all sorts of team building activities. Tonight we talked about sounds and how vibrations are responsible for the sounds we hear. If those vibrations are shorter and faster, the pitch of the sound is higher. If the vibrations are slower and longer, the pitch is lower. We blew through our pitch kazoos (specially cut straws) and made the pitch higher by cutting them shorter and shorter. James was able to make an incredibly high pitched sound. I think that his kazoo was no more than an inch or so long! The students also broke up into groups and experimented with vibration and pitch as they poured different amounts of water into bottles and tapped them to get sounds. It was a noisy night!
