Play at The EDGE – Cont’d

To assist folks leave their comfort zone and enter into their challenge or learning zone — this is the essence of experiential learning that occurs on a confidence course such as found at the Mason Center for Team and Organizational Learning (a.k.a. “The EDGE“). Of course the perceived stakes are higher (pun intended) when a group works through a high-ropes challenge. On belay!
The “Turtle-Monkeys” (a group of 5th graders) save a box turtle that was hiding under the 360-whale watch and then apply their turtle- and monkey-inspired superpowers to complete their confidence course activity. Some students were still like the turtle and others balanced like monkeys.
7th graders successfully navigate their way along the Mohawk Walk.
