Challenging High School Students to Collaborate by Tying Them Up

After a long PSAT morning on Wednesday, our middle and high school participated in a crew challenge. Crews were tied together and tasked with completing toothpick brainteasers in each room plus one out on our new property. Students had to take pictures and text each completed puzzle. To be successful, students needed to use key TEA character traits such as collaboration, creativity, and perseverance. The winner was the 11/12 Backwoods crew for being the quickest crew to complete all 11 puzzles and return to the finish line, but it was a close race with many teams right behind them.
