May 11/17 Social 9 Team Challenge #1

One focus of working in teams is to develop cooperative and productive interpersonal skills. Another is to add an element of Competition to the class.Image result for team challenge gif

Your team’s first challenge in competition against the other teams is this:

Discuss, search, and determine what our most valuable artifact of past peoples is.

To reveal your answer, you will:

  • post your response as a video explanation on your Team Instagram account.
    • Make it a habit for all Instagram posts to:
      • add the #ksoc9 hashtag
      • tag the two other teams in your post
  • Your answer to the challenge must be prepared/planned out and include:
    • your reasoning for your conclusion, with adequate support
    • an explanation/overview of the artifact item and why it’s the most valuable to our shared history as a human race
    • images – these can be displayed on other team member’s iPads and recorded during your explanation
    • the inclusion of all members of the team in the explanation of your choice (everyone must play a role in the presentation other than “recorder”)
    • bonus points for
      • clarity of presentation
      • creativity
      • tech skills
      • focus (don’t make too much of a game out of this)

As this will be our first Team Challenge, we’ll review after each presents their findings to develop some pros/cons from the samples and build a set of expectations/rules for the future Challenges.

Good luck!
