Learning Matters

This summer, Family Matters is running Learning Matters, a seven-week summer program for students going into 4th-8th grades. During our first week of Learning Matters, we spent three days camping at Where Pigs Fly Farm in Williamsport, Indiana.  For the remaining six weeks of the program, students have been engaged in daily music, reading, spelling, and math activities in the morning. In the afternoons, students become “secret agents” and are sent on top secret missions, in which their task is to learn as much as they can about a topic from an expert in the field. Each week, our secret agents are sent on new missions, and every Friday, they give a short presentation to the other groups on what they accomplished and experienced. In the coming weeks, please stay tuned for blog posts from students in Learning Matters: Mission Possible 2012!
