The Resiliency Tournament
Your students will set up a tournament to determine which person or character best demonstrated resiliency.
In this video, students will learn about resiliency through materials (like rubber bands) and then create a tournament of people and characters who have displayed resiliency.
- Students brainstorm examples of materials that: cannot stretch or squish, can stretch or squish (but don't bounce back), and can stretch or squire, and do bounce back.
- After learning about how muscle becomes stronger under stress, students will brainstorm people who have grown because of difficult situations.
- Finally, students will build a tournament with eight resilient competitors and work their way through to determine the champ!
