Here are the characters. You can tell a lot about the students by the stuffies they bring to school to do a character sketch. I’m not sure if you can make out Darth Vadar bear but he’s sitting there on the left, the stuffie in black. Tomorrow is our
last day together so I can read the stories about these guys in second draft.We also worked on scripts and here a couple of the students perform a very popular one on a “didi”that a boy tried to convince his mom was a good pet.
They always look so industrious when they work on the computers but really they’re probably deciding on a font here. Tomorrow we say good bye and it’s always a little sad. I’m assuming it may be my last time in a Sudbury classroom and Alexander Public is pretty special to me. Slam Dunk Robot was written there with the students’ input.
But you never know. Maybe I’ll be back for a launch of Death on Youtube
One of my favourite things about Sudbury is Science North and this picture is hardly representative of the imposing round glass building perched on the edge of Lake Ramsey. It uses part of the rock structure that it sits on as a wall. And as you climb up the five levels, the floor winds around a whale skeleton. So cool. I enjoyed the 3d Wild Oceans Imax last night but also visited with the animals, who feed when I’m done with school. Hence the photo of Rosie. But I also learned about stem cell research in the Genome Club object theatre. And today I skated on the frozen lake behind the centre. I remembered my Ipod and listened to Hawaiian music as I toured the lake path twice, then the battery died. Too bad I forgot my camera. The sunlight was brilliant against the white snow and ice. You’ll just have to imagine it.
