The Weekly Sprint (In Review) 10/13-10/17

There is some definite failure to declare around my weekly intentions…

#NOCHEATS intentions:

The enchanting went really well, the hedge, not so much.  I would say we got about 60% done with our hedge-fence.  It is turning out to be really huge (approximately 20 blocks tall in some spots) and will encompass all of Minetown.  I also learned a few valuable lessons about the nature of leaf blocks- you can’t place torches and ladders on them…

*A note on Minecraft in general—-> I have decided to take a week off from craftin’.  I’m not doing this because I have changed my mind about MC value- I still think there is a huge amount, even “educational” value in the mainstream sense- but simply need a week away from the cube.  I have noticed we’ve been taking less park trips and staying around school more, and I don’t want to be a part of the reason for this.

Geoguessr:

We did an All-American journey this week and scored pretty decently (17,648).  You can challenge us here: http://ryanshollenberger.agilelearningcenters.org/2014/10/14/geoguessr-exploring-america/

[@drew and the Sterlings scored 16,100.]

Wikitrails:

Our first journey took us from Michael Bay to chips… we did it in 3 clicks!

The second round took a little bit more patience, as we made it from Taylor Swift to whiteboards in 11 clicks.

Here’s what our trail looked like (I’ll make a separate post with the video later):

1. Wal-Mart

2. General Merchandice

3. Merchandise

4. North American Industry Classification System

5. Retail

6. Stationary

7. Office supplies

8. Office Depot

9. [Back to] Office Supplies

10. Writing Utensils

11. Whiteboards!!!!!

Thanks to @timotree, @pinkpanda, @jacobcb, @tinocrafter, @charlotte, and Isabella (sorry I still don’t know how to find your @)!

-Participate in a Howard Zinn reading of the Columbus chapter of “A People’s History of the United States”

Philosophy:

This week’s philosophy meeting was awesome.  We talked about vampires- their origins, evolutions, and place in human culture through the ages.  We began with watching the trailer to the original vampire film, Nosferatu… creepy.  We even went on a quick tangent and learned some cool stuff about angler fish.

Unknown

Chronology:

I declare failure on this one… @shadowjack had a busy week and @timotree wasn’t juiced for it.    I am holding for this to happen next week, especially because it will be a cool and simple history-based activity for our visitors to join in on.

Zombie Munchkins and Werewolves:

Werewolves saw the addition of a new character this week, thanks to @timotree and @theskycookie.  Welcome to The Werewolf Elder…   His power is to be able to sacrifice one of his own kind to convert a villager to a werewolf (except for the Village Elder).

I am pretty sure we played one of the longest Munchkins games in history this week. @timotree won, though everyone had at least 8 levels when the dust settled.

Agile Soccer Club:

With 8 kids this week, we were able to play a better game of world cup.  Team “Mordor” won in a close game, beating Team USA, Team Eagles, and Team Red Lotus by only 1 goal.  We also practiced shooting, worked on our fitness and stretching.

@abbyo ‘s Adventure Map:

This was SO FREAKING COOL- and OP too.  @douglasawesome and I died 3 times (once because we decided to defile an altar… probably a bad idea in all cases)

Take a trip to “Swing-a-Ring,” and awesome playground near @douglasawesome ‘s house

We rescheduled for Monday due to bad weather.

Duolingo:

Failure…only did Duolingo twice this week, though I did get my Lingot total up to 40 and purchased the “Flirting” bonus practice.  Learned how to say, “May I give you a kiss.” =)

 

 

Ok, I’m lagging a lot.  Time to log off and go to afternoon meeting.  Until next week agilites-

 

Love and agility,

 

Agilion.
