Destination Imagination Anne Boleyn

Scribbles and her Destination Imagination team conducted a dress rehearsal of their event in preparation for the Destination Imagination District Competition.

Destination ImagiNation (DI) is a creativity and problem solving program for children from elementary age to college age. Teams of up to seven members compete in various challenges that require complex thinking, problem solving, teamwork and creativity. The goal of the program is to teach creative and critical thinking, presentation skills, problem solving, and teamwork skills.

The group's topic for the competition was proving the existence or not of ghosts. And the focus of their performance is on Anne Boleyn. Anne Boleyn (1501/1507–19 May 1536) was the second wife of Henry the VIII and the mother of Elizabeth I of England. Henry's marriage to Anne, and her subsequent execution, were part of the complex beginning of the considerable political and religious upheaval which was the English Reformation, with Anne herself actively promoting the cause of Church reform. She has been called "the most influential and important queen consort England has ever had."
