Teamwork makes the Dreamwork!
Students walked together to a local park and enjoyed being outside as they participated in several team building activities. As students chose their partner for the first activity, one was blindfolded and the other one had to give specific directions on how to pick up 3 balls and put them in the trash. Each student had to focus on different skills to accomplish this task : one had to be specific in their directions, while the other student had to listen carefully to what the other student was saying to follow their directions. Students realized this was harder than what they had expected.
The next activity, “Guess Who?”, encouraged the students to ask one another specific questions about whose name was on their back. After enough clues, the students had to guess whose name they thought was on their back.
The final team building activity was “Pass the Baton”. Students were given a subject, such as “colors, Disney characters, cereals, etc.” Once the student got the baton they had to come up with the subject before they could pass the baton. After several rounds, three students were crowned the winners!
Today’s CBI allowed our B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students to focus on Development, Growth, Empowerment and Social Skills. Stay tuned for next weeks CBI!
