With the focus of our field trip on teamwork we began with a group effort sandcastle building competition. The children had previously planned their design in class and listed resources they would contribute to the team. It was great to see the children excited and working together to create their sandcastles in many creative ways. Some built the tower structures while others dug a moat and added walls.
During the Forest Adventure trip we saw many children as risk takers taking on the challenge of climbing and ziplining. The children encouraged each other through the course using positive praise to cheer on their friends. Many children were able to complete the course because they had a friend's encouragement. Some children were initially nervous but overcame their scared feelings and took on the challenge, even asking to go again!
