THE AMAZING RACE

What better way to kick-start a year than with a multidisciplinary PBL that finishes with a timed race all across the school? Fifth graders finished their first bimester with an Amazing Race. A race that challenged their physical abilities, their academic knowledge, their artistic sensitivity but, most importantly, their teamworking skills. During 50 minutes, teams of 4 or 5 students had to work together to figure out clues and solve challenges in order to find a treasure. Some teams finished with time to spare, some didn’t make it, but all of them learned the importance of working as a team and trying their very best and to us, that makes them all winners. Congratulations, fifth graders for your Amazing Race!
