Build a Castle Challenge

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.

  1. Wow! We were looking at these pictures and watching the video and we were completely blown away by what an exciting day that you must have had carrying out these activities. We loved how you had tarps that you used and capture the fun would have been so much fun.
