Doorway challenge

The Mineral Wells Junior High Outdoor Education Class has been working on team building the past several weeks.

To end the unit, Coach Taylor Tomlin greeted the students with a challenge to start the class. He met the students in the hallway and had the doorway covered with paper. He cut a hole in the paper that about 2x2 and about 3 feet off the ground.

The students were told they would have to get themselves and their belongings through the hole before class would begin. They were given 2 minutes to discuss a strategy. They got graded as a class on the challenge.

For every inch they ripped the paper, a point was taken off their grade (but he was actually pretty generous). Each class made an ‘A’ on the activity, and they loved it.
