LAUGHS AND LIZARDS: “Holes,” by Louis Sachar, kept us riveted as our CCP Camp’ book-of-the-summer this year. The mystery offers smiles and a storyline that includes dangerous, yellow-spotted lizards; so students created their own designer lizards between chapter readings — shown below. Week One of CCP Camp also included a visit from our own Science Guy, teacher Dave Shull. If the balloons in the below photo look like kids are just having a party, guess again: Dave showed the kids how a balloon, a straw, a cord, and a little tape can demonstrate the physics principle of action-reaction. Students finished off the week with a field trip to the San Jose Art Museum’s “The House Imaginary” exhibit, which inspired Imaginary House artwork created by the students themselves.
