After a day filled with outdoor education, students continue to enjoy the many evening activities available at Pali Institute. Some of these programs are natural extensions to our science and outdoor education classes, while others facilitate fun and group bonding.
ASTRONOMY1 Class Session (1.5 hours)
Having escaped the city lights, students are able to see the night sky like never before! Students become fully involved in this ancient science as they use telescopes to view the moon, Saturn’s rings or Jupiter’s moons. They discover constellations and the legends behind them in the same sky that has amazed humankind since the beginning of time.
MOVIE NIGHT (EDUCATIONAL OR COMEDY)1 Class Session (1.5 hours)
When students need to relax, our movie night gives them a chance to “march with the penguins” or take a “winged migration”. Students watch an educational movie or laugh all night long with a family-friendly comedy. The Pali movie list will be provided upon request, or teachers can bring a film of their choice.
PALI JEOPARDY1 Class Session (1.5 hours)
Put your thinking caps on! Students recall the knowledge accumulated throughout the week and engage in a battle of the brains. Divided into groups, they are asked trivia questions from several of the subjects learned during their stay. This fun activity reinforces educational lessons.
