On Friday, October 27,
Mrs. Kernion, Mrs. Rubin and Mrs. Vealey held a fall team-building day for
their second graders. Students had to work together with their classmates
to complete tasks that involved fall items, such as pumpkins and apples.
Some of the activities included were:
- Pumpkin and Broom
Relay - sweeping pumpkins with a broom across a path
- Pumpkin Drop - where
the kids tried to dump mini pumpkins from one bucket to another by each holding
onto the bucket with 12 long strings.
- Don't Drop the Pumpkin
- walking together in a line, holding an orange balloon between each body-but
NOT holding it with hands.
- Runaway Pumpkin/Apple
- rolling apples or small pumpkins on a tarp with holes, not allowing them to
fall through the holes.
The event ended with a
friendly competition between the three classrooms. The students transferred pumpkins from one
end of the field to the other by tossing them to each other down the line.
Students learned that
it is important to work together to accomplish big things, and learned to
encourage each other and work well.
