- To build connection and understanding among club members
- To understand what resources are available to you at your school and in your community
- To understand what the differences are for each resource and in what situations they may be utilized
- Have students break into groups of 3-4.
- Hand out the fidget spinners and the fidget spinner questions handout.
- Put a piece of tape on one of the three sides of the spinner.
- One student at a time spins the fidget spinner. The student will answer the question that the spinner lands on (marked by the piece of tape).
- Students can explain their answer choice if they so choose.
- Discuss what resource(s) you believe are most impactful for students at your school.
- To build connection among club members
- To practice teamwork with club members
- Predetermine a starting and ending point (Point A and Point B).
- Mark the Point A and Point B with masking tape.
- Gather bandanas (two less than number of students in club).
- Explain the object of the game is for all group members to get from Point A to Point B only using the provided bandanas.
- The goal is to get everyone across the bandanas without touching the floor (aka the peanut butter pit) in under 2 minutes.
- At the completion of the activity, you can talk about how the activity was an example and proof that other people care and want to help (possibly provide specific examples/observations of students helping one another from the activity). Sometimes we do not even recognize the resources.
- Was this something you felt like you could have done without talking to your group members? If so, would it have been easier or harder?
- Did everyone seem to have the same goal in mind? Was everyone working together to try to achieve that goal?
- How did asking for help aid your own mission to get across the line? Could you have gotten across alone?
