Team Building at MHS
This week my MHS JAG students were hard at work constructing Balloon Towers.
For the task, students worked in teams of about six students and were given 24 balloons and a role of masking tape. The only requirements were that teams had to use all of their balloons and the towers had to be be free standing.
Activities such as these help to reinforce JAG’s Leadership and Self-Development competencies. The students demonstrated excellent teamwork and the activity also exposed the natural leaders within each group, serving as a prompt for us to discuss the different roles and dynamics found in effective teams.
Students have also been busy preparing her students for the upcoming Career Association elections. The Career Association is a student-led club that gives students the opportunity to develop, practice, and refine personal, leadership, and employability skills.
