Learning while you play

ABOVE: Patricia Gerhardt of the Concordia Year of Peace Committee leads a learning game with a dozen children at Concordia’s Second Street Park before lunch on Monday. The children used plastic foam cups to build “trust towers,” so when Pat read a sentence that would build trust, the children added a cup and when she read a sentence that would harm trust, they took a cup off. This is the third session at the park where Pat and other members of the Year of Peace Committee have provided children’s activities.

LEFT: Not everyone had the same idea about the best way to play with the cups. Sister Julie Christensen, a Sister of St. Joseph and one of several Year of Peace Committee members helping out Monday, was surprised when one of the children decided the cups made a better hat than tower.
