Team Building Task-The Cup Challenge - take a rubber band and tie 6 strings to it (though I think 5 would work if you want smaller groups). Participants must use only the strings to move 6 cups into a pyramid formation. You can make this a competition between the groups or give them harder cup moving tasks.

First Day Activities

STEM Activity: Marshmallow Building Challenge - Give each group of kids 20 pieces of spaghetti, 1 yard of tape, 1 yard of string, and 1 giant marshmallow. Whoever builds the tallest structure wins!

Follow Live. Love. Math.
