Camp GLOW – Education Day

7 Aug

Education Day was a mish mash of English improvement, science, IT, and geography. We staged an Africa Quiz Bowl session with all Africa trivia. While Ethiopian history was easy, many of the famous sites and people outside of Ethiopia were surprisingly difficult, though I had to remember most of these girls had never even left their tiny villages before.

We also continued the gender day activities with a Strong Woman Pinata. The girls all wrote down statements about why they were strong women, read them aloud, and then hit the pinata. Too. Much. Fun.
