Totally Exciting And Meaningful
Fridays of 6th grade...ahhhh they were soooo much fun ya know why? Because we had TEAM!! But this year in 7th grade we don't have TEAM so fridays are pretty boring. That's why I want to have TEAM on fridays so we won't be bored and we can have fun. There are actually some good reasons why we should have TEAM, it's not just for having fun it's actually Team building activities ya know hence the TEAM?.
I think we should have TEAM because we will be interacting and working together with one another and express ideas on how to accomplish the game we might be playing. It can also bring up kids confidence when we play interactive games. And our classes are an hour on Friday so maybe if we shorten them to 45 minutes we would have room and enough time to do TEAM! And us students deserve some fun on Friday since we do a lot of work every day of the week!!!
TEAM would also help to get our energy out and will help us to focus on the activity we would be doing. And most kids are not in the same classes as their friends so when we have TEAM with the whole grade you can interact and work together and have fun with your friends. Also instead of fooling around in class we could fool around, have fun, and socialize with our friends. We may even talk with people we don't usually talk to. TEAM can also help by using new strategies that you can use in your every day life.
Some of the activities we did in TEAM were capture the flag which was really fun and we were all working together to try and get the flag. Another activity was a game where we would all put our shoes in a big pile and then we would get in groups and we would have a race, you have to have all of your teammates run and put on their shoes and tie them and if you were the first group done you would win!
But we didn't always do games, we also did stuff like scavenger hunts. We did a scavenger hunt where we were in a group and we had to look up all these different things on the computer to answer the questions. We also did activities where you really had to use your brain to try and figure things out. One of those activities was when we had about 3 or 4 people in a group and they each held the end of a string and you would have to tie a knot without letting go of the string. I liked this one because we had to work together and use each others strategies.
I really loved TEAM! And I hope after my story you will be persuaded and allow us to have TEAM! Thank you for your time
