Students began the race by completing a written task that they had found hidden around the school, they worked hard to untangle themselves in a human knot before measuring a school pathway using just a piece of string. They blew up balloons using vinegar and baking soda before firing pompoms around the class with their home made catapult.
As they completed these tasks the were awarded pieces of a code to use in their final task. What great preparation for camp, the groups had to stay together, keep all of their gear with them and allocate roles to be successful.
I was really impressed with the conversations that some groups had, they really took time to make sure that they knew where they were going, they listened to each others ideas before selecting the best one and took turns to do tasks. Great work team!
