Jobs: Reporter, Resort Manager, Makeup Artist, Anthropologist

As a reporter, Quinn observed and reported what the new camp building was like. We also watch videos of news reporters and studied newspaper articles.

Being a resort manager wasn't that great. As a family we went to La Torrenta on Lake Conroe, and was expecting to see lots of people doing lots of jobs on the resort, but we really didn't. We observed the receptionists, valet, cafe workers, lifeguards, and the people who made the smores.

Makeup artist was fun. Quinn and Sabrina went to Sephora to learn how to put on makeup. Quinn and Popo did clown makeup. We got some books from the library about beauty makeup and special effects makeup. We also watched a trailer for Face-Off to see some of the special effects makeup in action.

As an anthropologist, Quinn had to learn the rules and customs of a new culture (Kolter Elementary). We also read some Greek mythology stories and talked about how sometimes cultures made up stories to explain things that they didn't understand.
