Pokemon: Gotta Catch 'Em All
with Melissa Corbin
January's afterschool program is all about Pokemon!
The original Pokémon is a role-playing game based around building a small team of monsters to battle other monsters in a quest to become the best. Pokémon are divided into types, such as water and fire, each with different strengths. Battles between them can be likened to the simple hand game rock-paper-scissors.
We will be playing Bingo (for prizes), a craft, snack and a quiz. So bring your A game and join us for a fun afternoon of Pokemon!
Open to grades 2-5.
Zipple students will be picked up by someone in the far corner of the parking lot.
