Developing their teamwork skills, Woodland Middle School students recently participated in Mix It Up Day and team building activities.

The Social Emotional Learning Committee held a decades-themed Mix It Up Day for sixth- and seventh-graders during their lunch periods to meet new people, develop their social skills and work in teams. During their homeroom period, the students received different colored bracelets that grouped them with new peers. Together, they took part in activities identifying toys, characters and songs from the 1950s to the 2000s.

Additionally, throughout the day, eighth-graders practiced their team building skills with exercises and gaming applications. Working collaboratively to accomplish a common goal, they participated in activities such as human rock, paper, scissors and land mine travel, where teams had to direct their classmates across a field of “land mines” without stepping on a mine or bumping into another competitor. The students also participated in icebreaker speed chatting and activities related to science, technology, engineering, the arts and math.
