As we usually do-we split into color groups. This helps the kids to work together as small groups and also to connect more closely with their fellow TOP kids. A group of 6 is a big difference from 12-as we know as adults. Imagine a dinner party of 12 and then visualize one with 6 people. The smaller group means a quieter time, closer interactions and perhaps a bit of warmth as well. Humans usually connect more easily with a smaller group.

FYI- I've been given the wonderful opportunity to review a new nature book on my blog called Early Childhood Activities for a Greener Earth. I will be reviewing the book this coming Monday, April 29th. I'm excited for my first adventure into expanding my blogging world!
