Looking for something you can do to break the ice on the first day without having to gather a ton of materials? Worried that students are going to die of boredom if you do one more presentation on procedures and expectations? If you answered yes to either of those questions, this school team-building activity is the answer to your problems!
Using the Whale Band-aid activity, students will be up out of their seats and moving around, communicating with one another (non-verbally!), and problem solving from the very first day.
The premise is simple: break students into groups and then take turns having them stand as a team on top of a regular twin sized bedsheet (bulletin board fabric works too!). The students must flip the fabric over without having anyone step off at any point and without speaking.
Afterward, they’ll complete a quick reflection focused on how teams should best work together.
This activity is sure to get students giggling and will definitely provide a unique answer to the question “What did you do at school today?”
