Tony Carter joined us at RIO yesterday to teach us about Character Development through a character support group. The kids had fun making characters with some serious problems from not liking being touched, short term memory loss, running away from home with a pet pig, being trapped either in the belly of a squid or under a rock deep underwater, and being an everything eating dragon, among others. We then devised ways of helping each other using our characters. The kids loved the play acting and learned some important ways of character exploration without even knowing they were learning, which really is the best kind of education - education through play. Thanks again Dare Devil, we had fun!
