  1. Outdoor and Nature feedback
    – very much like the choice for students
    – initial “area of interests” survey needed to generate list of possible projects
    -feasibility of projects – leader support/expertise; material; space;

  2. Could we have some level of collaboration between groups in the school, via virtual means?
    We still need to have some responsibility/ reflection for the students to see what/how they are learning during this time can be applied in class time (outside of flex)

  3. -May not feasible or attainable.

    -Curriculum connection concerns.

    -Could this be an extra curricular activity, possibly run by high school students?
