Card Houses Half the class will run around the building, twice. The other half will meditate in the classroom silently (if you can’t meditate you will reflect inwardly on your day)
Each person in the partnership will take turns making a house of cards. The object is to make a house with the most number of stories that is standing at the end of a two minute period. The person who ran outside will go first.
WINNERS! There is a sheet being passed around for the winners of the card house game to put their names on. The winner from each pair gets 5 points of extra credit. The losers get nothing.
Need to Achieve Who won? How do you feel about winning or losing? What does this say about your need to achieve? I’m not really giving an extra points
