Odyssey of the Mind Task
Today in first grade we learned about the Odyssey of the Mind and watched a video that showed some of the things that kids do when they participate in this program. The students were given a bag of materials. These included a rubber band, toothpicks, a styrofoam cup, straws, mailing labels and string. They had to build a structure that was as tall as they could make it and would need to hold as many paper clips as possible!
The kids worked in small groups and worked REALLY hard. They did a great job working together and communicating their ideas to each other. I was a very proud teacher!
I am fairly certain that we have some future engineers in our class!
