First Week of School Activities
Activity #1: Saving Sam
This activity has been around for a while, but besides just a fun activity on the first day of school, it’s a great way to reinforce why working together is so important!
If you’ve never used this activity before…
Sam (the gummy worm) has capsized his boat (the cup) and cannot swim. His life preserver (the gummy lifesaver) is under the boat. Each student gets a paperclip and can only use it to put the life preserver on Sam and save him!
