Mrs. Nickolauson's 8th grade REACH students recently completed a challenging ‘Reassembling the rainbow’ Team Building activity.
Half of the team is blindfolded, while the other half can see. The students that can see cannot say the color of the block or touch the blocks. They have a pattern they have to complete as a team, and as a team devise multiple different strategies to achieve their goal.
This activity focuses on teamwork, patience, critical-thinking, and strategic thinking. While it was a slow start, they worked together to complete the pattern and were kind to one another while working on a difficult task.
