We continued our work on Survivors! The kids generated a list of things they would bring, if they had to leave home. After creating the list, they discussed and defended their choices. Kind of hard to defend bringing a game system or 10 cases of bottled water! They continued their work with a partner to start brainstorming ideas for their Survivor Audition video, which they'll film next week. We also had our second Tribal Challenge-"Move the Bugs!" We ended with a 3-Way tie, so all Tribes will earn the Reward for next class! Loved the teamwork and positive comments during our Challenge today!
We continued reading our Survivor-themed novels today. The focus was on questions we have about the book, as we get more into the story.
We did an interesting Group Dynamics lesson called, "What's My Value". The kids were given a playing card to hold on their forehead without looking at it. Then, they had conversations with comments according to the "Value" of the card. Without looking at their cards, they lined up by how they felt after the game. They figured out pretty quickly whether their card was high or low value after seeing where they fit in the line. We followed this with an excellent discussion about judging people's value based on superficial traits or appearances. I was impressed with their insights and connections!
