In PE today, Coach B had a challenging activity for students. Students had to compete in teams to figure out how to build a “Hula Hut” using six hula hoops.
Our middle school students did a STEM activity of building towers from index cards. The project required collaboration, cooperation, communication, and critical thinking – all of which are “21st Century skills” emphasized in cutting edge schools today.
