The ice

  • The pack ice is a large white sheet laid on the lawn. The goal: your children are penguins who have to climb on the ice floe.
  • At first, it's easy, there is room for everyone. Then the penguins come down from the pack ice to go for a swim. During this time, the sun melts the pack ice: you fold the sheet in half to make it smaller. The penguins will tighten to go back to dry.
  • They succeeded ? Well done, but it's time to go back to go swimming for fish. The pack ice is still melting and the penguins are going to devise strategies to survive on this pack ice, which is shrinking from turn to turn.
