Science Team Building Fun Activity
Integrated Unit (Optional)
This Science Teambuilding activity, emphasizes cooperation and collaboration skills needed in science class and in the field of science. While working to float, sink and suspend a single piece of foil, students must learn to overcome communication difficulties, share responsibilities and take on leadership roles to help their group succeed. Teams earn float, sink and suspend flags as they achieve their goals, creating an atmosphere of friendly competition. Teams who fail to follow rules or struggle to share responsibility lose flags and need to work together to earn them back. Perfect for back to school, a special team-building event or for a fun day before break activity!

However, coordinating integration across multiple subject areas can be quite an undertaking. That’s where Spiral Studies comes in. We’re a group of TpT teacher-authors and we’ve combined our expertise to make absolutely turn-key integrated units for you and/or your team. If you’d like to turn this lesson into an integrated unit we’d suggest working with your team (or independently if you teach multiple subject areas) and checking out the Spiral Studies teambuilding
