Once again this first week of school I did a team building activity. Students were put into groups and were to build the tallest free standing structure using just tape and 7 balloons ( I gave them each an extra balloon just in case one popped… yes they could use the extra one in their structure). I gave them 20 minutes to accomplish this project as a team! This one was just as interesting as the spaghetti and marshmallow structure project.
Try it with your class. Lot’s of fun…
Oh also I had them moan in advance about their groups… if they decided to moan after I called out the groups they would have to sit out with THEIR HEAD DOWN ( bc they obviously can’t handle being in 6th grade)… and yes I had one to moan, and yes they sat out for the entire project.
Students need to learn early to show kindness to their classmates!
