Instant Challenge

Cheney is in a club called Rising Stars. It is a part of Destination Imagination. Destination Imagination is a problem solving group. DI is for kids who are at least in the 3rd grade. Rising Stars is the "in-training" group for kids in the 1st and 2nd grade. You have to be invited to be part of the group.

On competition day, the group will present a planned skit to solve a problem and they will also participate in Instant Challenge. For Instant Challenge, they have 5 minutes to solve a problem with supplies that have been given to them and then they will present their problem to a group of judges.

Today, all the teams in the school district came together to practice for Instant Challenge.

For this challenge, they were given some supplies & 30 pennies.....they had to create a structure that was tall and could hold as many pennies as possible.

Cheney is way smarter than I ever thought about being!! Almost as smart as this Daddy!!

You are so right. Now you just have to figure a way to keep him motivated and the desire to learn, be competitive, creative, as well as kind, loving, helpful, nice, compassionate, stong, etc. alive and well. Oh my, could it be that Cheney will be all of both of his parents and MORE???? That's my grandson!!
