Grades 3-5 had a fun Town Meeting on January 10th. We learned about thinking INTERDEPENDENTLY. We did a challenge where we had to stack 10 cups into a pyramid! But here’s the catch, we had a rubber band and a string for every person in the group, we weren’t allowed to touch the cups or the rubber band. You were only aloud to touch your string. Here is what some kids thought about the Town Meeting, Eleanor in 3rd Grade says, “It was very tricky, I can’t really find words to describe it. Out of 10 I would give this challenge an 8 1/2.” Giulia says, “It was a fun activity. It was a great working together activity and it showed that we had great teamwork abilities.” I think those are some pretty good reviews.  Mrs. Gilbert led the activity, she explained, “The idea first actually came from when I saw first grade (1D) doing it.” On a scale of 1-10, I would rate a 10, it was great! For the most part, 153 kids cooperated in a gym. Thanks for such a fun activity, Mrs. Gilbert! Success!
