Team building in 8th grade

8th.jpgAn eighth grade advisory group works together to untangle a human knot without letting go of their hands.

It is called a human knot. Everyone grabs two hands – not the person next them, and not both hands of the same person. Their goal is to untie the knot without anyone ever letting go of their hands.

We did this in one of our advisory periods in order for the students to learn to work together and at the same time using their communication and leadership skills.
