Our instructor had wowed us with photographs of hand-painted murals, board games constructed from 100% recycled materials, and the classic erupting volcano experiment adapted for South African classrooms. Now it was our turn.
The booty? King-sized candy bars. Saddled with “circulatory system” as our topic, my team sprang into action.

4. The children at our local school belted “Marching in the Light of God” as they paraded to their classrooms.
5. There are benefits to rising at dawn and retreating by sunset:
