Team Building Tips!

 

Team-Building

Tips!


Most students LOVE Field Days--especially after all of the testing is finally over! I like to connect my last guidance lessons with the Field Day activities to help students practice working together and to help them see how their results can really improve when they show good teamwork.


One simple activity is for the students to stand in a circle, with each student holding a pencil. I simply time how long it takes for a Wiffle® Ball to be passed completely around the circle from start to finish. The only rule is that everyone must use their pencil to move the ball.

Before we begin the activity, I ask students what would excellent teamwork look like? They say things like, "Good listening, encouraging words, being patient, don't yell at people who drop the ball, etc." 

I make a chart on the board like this:

Time# Drops
Estimate______________
Trial #1______________
Trial #2______________
Trial #3______________

I ask students to estimate how many second they think it will take for the ball to go all away around the circle. We count the total number of students to help estimate the time. We also estimate the number of drops that will be made.

After the first round, we compare the numbers to our estimates. Was it better, worse, or the same? What were some good examples of students showing good teamwork? Who was patient? Who was focused? Who watched others while they waited to see what works best? Who was encouraging or nice if someone dropped the ball?

Before starting the second trial, I ask the students to share with each other what they think would be necessary for the time and/or drops to improve. Who can share how THEY want to demonstrate better team-building skills?


After the second trial, a similar conversation helps students analyze their performance. How would team-building make a difference in a factory where workers are making toys? How would saving 15 seconds make a difference over an 8-hour shift? How much money could you save if you could prevent 2 drops (damaged toys thrown away) every hour?

In the comments below, please share some of your favorite team-building activities with students.

  11. এসএসসি রেজাল্ট ২০১৯ দেখার নিয়ম
    আমরা বিভিন্নভাবে এসএসসি রেজাল্ট ২০১৯ দেখতে পারি। সবাই জানি যে রেজাল্ট প্রকাশিত হলে বাংলাদেশ শিক্ষা বোর্ড এর সবগুলো ওয়েবসাইট ডাউন হয়ে যায়। অতিরিক্ত ভিজিটরের কারণে সার্ভার ডাউন হয়ে যায়। ডাউন থাকলেও আমরা রেজাল্ট দেখে দিতে পারব। সেজন্য আপনাদের যা করতে হবে তা বলছি। এই পোষ্টের নিচের দিকে লক্ষ্য করলে দেখবেন যে কমেন্ট করার অপশন আছে। এখানে আপনারা আপনাদের শিক্ষা বোর্ডের নাম এবং রোল নাম্বার লিখে দিবেন। আর যারা মার্কশিট সহ রেজাল্ট দেখতে চান তারা রেজিস্ট্রেশন নাম্বার দিবেন। এখন আমরা এস এস সি রেজাল্ট ২০১৯ দেখার অন্যান্য উপায় গুলো নিয়ে আলোচনা করব।
    নাম্বারসহ এসএসসি রেজাল্ট ২০১৯ দেখার নিয়ম
    আপনাদের অনেকের মনে প্রশ্ন কিভাবে ডিগ্রি ৩য় বর্ষের রেজাল্ট ২০১৯ ডাউনলোড করব? সমাধান নিয়ে হাজির হলাম। এখানে কীভাবে নম্বরসহ রেজাল্ট দেখবেন তার বিস্তারিত নিয়ম বর্ণনা করা হলো।
    • প্রথমে ইন্টারনেট কানেকশন আছে এমন ডিভাইস থেকে, মোবাইল বা কম্পিউটার বা ল্যাপটপ হতে পারে। এই লিংকে প্রবেশ করুন
    • http://www.educationboardresults.gov.bd/ or Board Result.com
    • তারপর মেনু থেকে এসএসসি দাখিল বা ইকুইভালেন্ট সিলেক্ট করুন
    • তারপর পরীক্ষার সাল 2019 নির্বাচন করুন।
    • এবার আপনার শিক্ষা বোর্ড নির্বাচন করুন। আপনি যদি ঢাকা শিক্ষা বোর্ডের পরীক্ষার্থী হয় তাহলে ঢাকা নির্বাচন করুন।
    • এবার আপনার রোল নাম্বার লিখুন।
    • পরের শূন্য স্থানের রেজিস্ট্রেশন নাম্বার দেন।
    • সবশেষে গণিত সমাধান করুন।
    • তারপর সাবমিট বাটনে ক্লিক করুন।
    আশা করছি আপনি রেজাল্ট দেখতে সক্ষম হয়েছেন। আপনি যদি রেজাল্ট দেখতে ব্যর্থ হন তাহলে অবশ্যই কমেন্টের মাধ্যমে তা আমাদের জানান। আমরা যত শীঘ্র সম্ভব আপনার রেজাল্ট দেখে দিব।
