Play at The EDGE – Cont’d

In Confidence Course Facilitator, High Ropes Course, High Touch, leadership on September 18, 2012 at 3:00 pm

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.
