The first days of school can be exhausting! This building activity is a blast and teaches important lessons about communication. Included are teacher instructions, student instructions, a student reflection sheet and discussion questions. All you will need for this activity are some marshmallows, spaghetti, and a group of creative kids. Student directions are easily adapted to different supplies and time constraints. This is always a lot of fun on the first day of school and for rainy days all year long! Don’t miss the opportunity to engage students while helping them reflect on the best ways to communicate.
