Team Work Makes the Dream Work at Westchester
We are developing teamwork with students so that everyone is working in unison and learning to use individual strengths to work in a team. Everyone works together, participating with a positive attitude to succeed. A variety of team building activities help to strengthen friendship bonds, channel efforts, and discover that everyone works together with their strengths, encouraging each other as they complete their tasks.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Students were challenged to participate in random teams. They discovered that only by working as a team could they come together to brainstorm how best to move, check off the challenges, and complete the activity. The games are designed to take students out of the comfort zones and teach them to work together. As the games continued, students became more confident with their teams and had a blast.
