Academic Team Challenges

Academic Team Challenges require the use of different skills from the team members: Students strong in content knowledge, students who work well collaboratively, students who can communicate effectively, and students with strong problem solving skills. This provides the potential for each student to be a factor in the accomplishments of their team, and for teammates to appreciate each other for their contributions.

Academic Team Challenge: Move and Match for Memorization Math Sets

Remember the old concentration game? It’s a card game in which all of the cards are laid face down on a surface and two cards are flipped face up on each turn. The object of the game is to find pairs of matching cards. This game works the same way, except that participants work collaboratively in teams, using both teambuilding skills and matching strategies along with physical activity.
