Today the 7th-grade class participated in a Team Building Exercise: Fill the Glass. In groups of four students had to work as a team to get the water from a bottle into a glass without spilling it to the table or the customer. One team member had a blindfold and was guided by two other team members to the table where there is a waiting customer. Once at the table students had to talk the waiter to the glass to empty the bottle of water.
It was fun to see students working together to get a task accomplished. Students had fun and said it was a bit scary at the same time. Allowing yourself to be guided by someone else takes a lot of trust.
