Marker is attached to 8 strings, and the group has to write out a word by working together and only holding onto the last foot foot of each string. Great team building activity for upper elementary students.
PE: This would be a very fun activity the first week of school! Teacher says a statement (ex. Switch sides if you like hot dogs more than pizza.) and the students either stay or move. The kids could also talk about why they did/didn't move.
