After a long field trip to Richmond the previous day, we woke up ready to tackle today’s challenge. Instead of a normal day which would consist of class and a few guest speakers, we played the Budget Game. The Budget Game was somewhat similar to the Senate Simulation in that we broke up into groups to perform individual tasks and then came together, however this time we separated into a House and a Senate.

This morning had an abrupt start when a fire alarm went off in the middle of the night. We continued on with our night's sleep. Our day of classes started when Ms. Falgiano gave us a lesson on public speaking before our array of speakers for the day.

This morning, the Sorensen High School Leaders Program began the day with brunch and the World Cup. We watched France defeat Croatia to start off our day ( VIVE LE FRANCE). Afterward, we split into three random groups to play a fun game. The game was a type of charades, but instead of never being able to talk, we decreased the number of words we could say from 3 to 0 every round.
