GO Team NZ with Room 3's Red Socks!

Today I asked the kids if any of them knew why people were wearing red socks. Non of them knew so we launched into a teachable moment of researching Sir Peter Blake's red socks! We discovered that it was his wife who gave him his first pair of red socks and when he wore them, we won his races. However, the first time he didn't wear them, he lost! So they became an icon of NZ as America's Cup good luck charm! Here is a photo of Room 3 showing off their lucky red socks:
