Crew Assembly - NWMS Battle Creek MI

Activity: 
Crew Assembly

After watching videos about spacesuits and astronaut training underwater, Northwestern Middle School 7th graders divided into teams. Each team sent two crew members to another station where they had to put on two sets of gloves and complete one part of a puzzle. Once the pair completed their end of the mission, another crew from the team came up and did the same until the entire puzzle was complete. The team who finished the whole puzzle first was declared the winner. The students had to overcome the challenge of wearing layered gloves, but also communicate effectively, in order to be successful. They all agreed the mission looked easy at first but struggled once they got going. We then reflected on best practices, challenges, and team work goals in their journal entries. This was a fun and competitive activity the students really enjoyed!
