The big focus of our day was 'The Great Race': a challenge to complete 8 stations involving team work and answering key questions.
Our teams were:
Some of the challenges included:
Washing a shirt using traditional methods
Dressing in traditional clothing
Making a human chain to pass coal quickly to a gate and back
Making a human knot.
Writing school rules on a slate and playing old school games
Going to jail!
We finished our day with a tram ride.
Noa rang the bell and the driver/conductor let her wear his hat and pass it around.
So a great day and lots of great learning about teamwork to begin our Inquiry unit: Standing up, Looking out.
