Students in Mr. Schwalm's homeroom have been working on team challenges during Sharktime and just finished their first Ultimate Challenge!  The challenge was to work together to transport a marble from his class room all the way to Mr. Roger's office using strips of pvc.  The rules were that they weren't able to move their feet or touch the marble, if the marble dropped they had to start over from the beginning.  Students worked on this a few times a week for three weeks.  During the process the class engaged in conversations focused on having empathy for others and three main concepts that go along with that: respecting others' ideas, including everyone, and active listening.

Here is a video of the class completing the Ultimate Challenge.
