We had a fulfilling trip to Morse Hill on October 4th. Working with Victoria Shaw and other Morse Hill staff, fourth graders participated in a series of cooperative challenges. We started with games outside in a field on a very chilly fall morning, taking time to stop and reflect on how to work together and make our day successful. The class broke into two groups later in the morning to tackle four different challenges on the low-ropes course. The “whale watch” and the “Mohawk walk” both led to frustration and pride as groups overcame challenges. After lunch, we hiked to the high ropes course and tried the “flying squirrel” and the “ladder.”
