This week on our Summer Road Trip, we stopped at Disney World, the happiest place on earth. Our lesson took a look at the idea that happiness is fine, but we should really be pursuing joy. I think the lesson was interesting, fun, short and kinda funny....not bad, really.

We played a great game called 'Will it Float' (borrowed from David Letterman). We had an aquarium on stage and dropped several random items one-by-one into the water. Students had to vote for float or sink for each item. It was a total hit.

We leave for Summer Camp today which is why this post is up earlier than usual.
Not sure I'll post every day.

Hey Kurt!

What sort of "random" things did you put in the aquarium? I am planning on using this game on Sunday. Thanks!

J.J.J.,
some of the items were:
- A can of soda
- A massive Chocolate bar
- Can of Spam
- CD
- Bottle of water
- A little Lego figure
- etc.

BTW...we found that most stuff floated, so you may want to try it out ahead of time to have a good mix.
