Lego Challenge
Don’t Rock the Boat!
You will be reflecting on each of these activities
My expectation with this exercise: I want you to get to know the people in your class.
• Each student will receive a sheet of printing paper and write their name (first and last) on the back.

• Each student will divide that paper into four quadrants

• Each student will write three truths about themselves that people wouldn’t normally know about them (e.g. something they enjoy doing, visiting somewhere, talent, etc.) and also write one lie. It should be something that would be believable . They can be written in any order.
Step 1
Step 3
• Students will walk around the room with a loose leaf sheet of paper.

• As they are walking they are to flip the paper over and write the persons name and what they believe to be the lie for each classmate.

• As a class we will discuss what you thought was a lie and the classmate will reveal the real lie.
Step 2
• Students will reflect on:

• Their experience with each other and themselves
• What they feel they received from the activity
• What this activity tells them about the class
Lego Challenge
My expectation with this exercise: I want you to be able to problem solve.
Step 1
Students will get into groups of 4

Students will be told what they will be doing with the Legos

Students will then decide what their strategy is for conquering the task and decide the order they will come put to the teacher
Step 2
Each student will have 45 seconds to come up and look at the teacher's Lego formation

Each student will then have 2 minutes to help his/her group put together the structure
This will repeat for all four students
Step 3
Students will then walk around the room and see how close their peers got to the teacher's structure

Students will reflect on:
Their experience with each other and themselves
What they feel they received from the activity
What this activity tells them about the class.
Don't Rock the Boat!
My expectation for this exercise: I want you to be able to make decisions that are justified and rational.
Step 1
Students will get into a group of 8

The groups will sit on the sheet that is already placed on the floor

Groups will then pick up the labels that have titles on it

The group members will have 4 minutes to decide which title they want and put it on
Step 2
Music will be playing and and while the music is playing the group members will convince their group members they (their title) are important to stay on the boat

When the music stops, the group must “throw someone overboard”

Catch: Your group must write down a reason they decided to throw each person overboard
Step 3
Students will reflect on:

Their experience with each other and themselves

What they feel they received from the activity

What this activity tells them about the class
