After a day filled with outdoor education, students will continue with many fun activities at Pali Institute, where they will laugh, sing, and learn!
Having escaped from the city lights, students are able to see the night sky as never before...perfectly! Students become fully involved in this ancient science as they use telescopes to view the Earth’s moon, the rings of Saturn or the moons of Jupiter. They will also discover constellations and their tales in the same sky that has amazed humans since the beginning of time.
During this evening activity, students will learn about a world that buzzes with mysterious activity. As they hike and explore, students are taught about the animals of the night and how they survive in a nocturnal environment. This class includes an exploration of the senses, echolocation and bioluminescence, among other educational and entertaining activities.
Put your thinking caps on! Students will recall the knowledge accumulated throughout the week and engage in a battle of the brains. Divided into groups, students are asked trivia questions from several of the subjects learned from the week. This is a fun activity that reinforces educational lessons.
Pali Variety Show
Students will gather for a fun-filled evening of skits and songs. Audience participation is the backbone for this activity as each group creates a fun-filled experience laced with laughter. This is a must-do for all ages!
Owl Pellet Dissection
Let's find out what our favorite nocturnal predator had for dinner in this classic biology lab. Students will dissect an owl pellet to find bones, beaks and skulls. What animals do they belong to? It is up to you to find out.
It's time to show off your vocal talents... or lack of! During an evening of musical mayhem, students can sing along to current and classic hits in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
Movie Night (Educational based or Comedy)
When students need to relax, our movie night gives them a chance to "March with the Penguins" or takes a "Winged Migration". Students can watch an educational movie or laugh all night long with a comedic film of your choice on our large screen TV. The Pali Movie List will be provided upon request. Feel free to bring a movie of your choice as well.
Games, Games, Games (G3)
Students will participate in various facilitated team games such as Alaskan Baseball or Capture the Flag. These activities are sure to tire out your students just in time for bed. Schools also have the option of playing nighttime Ga-Ga or 4-Square.
Dance (Music provided by Pali)
A popular nighttime activity, Club Pali opens its doors weekly, and students are advised to line up when it does! Inside they'll find dancing, cool lighting and a party that they will never forget! Schools are more than welcome to bring their own music.
