Today we had a Base Group (Tribe) Castle Challenge. Tribes were asked to build a castle and make a flag. They had to work together as a base group without any teacher input. Tribes had to decide on roles and responsibilities. They also had to decide on a name for their tribe.
Tribes were given a spaces in the school as territories and were given some materials that they could use. They would have to negotiate with other tribes to have the necessary materials to build a safe castle.
At the end of the day, we played "Capture the Flag."
It will be interesting to hear the reflections of the tribes tomorrow and how they link this to our Inquiry: People Power.
