Alligators is one of my favorite teamwork activities. You can find directions HERE.
This is another one that I love. I do the spaghetti and marshmallows challenge every year with my 5th grade students and they have a blast!
I also do this activity every year. You use straws and tape to create a boat and then see how many pennies your boat can hold before it sinks. Students have so much fun with this one!
The Human Knot is another great teamwork challenge. You don't need any supplies and I have done this activity with students as young as 2nd grade all the way through high school.
Great Items that are NOT FREE!
