Team building was the focus of our morning. Students were given the task of building a structure with spaghetti that would hold a marshmallow on it. The goal was to create the highest structure. Not only did students learn about which shapes create the strongest structures but more importantly how to work together to share ideas and create a successful final product.
Please check out the student reflections of this activity here.
1) Dream Board - start planning what images, quotes and/or words that inspire you to be the best you can be each day. We will begin developing our Dream Boards on Monday so if you have time this weekend get a head start by searching magazines for images or the internet for images, and famous quotes. Talk to parents about this activity to help with ideas if you need.
Video: Here are some inspirational quotes that may help you get your ideas going for your dream board. What inspires you?
