1. Marker Message: Several strings were tied to a dry-erase marker. Each student held a string, and they worked together to write a message. This challenge is much harder than it looks, but all teams were ultimately successful.
2. Toxic Waste: A bungee cord was attached around a bucket holding tennis balls. Ropes were tied to the bungee cord. Each student held the end of a rope. The object was to dump the tennis ball into the empty bucket without touching the toxic waste or bucket.
3. Hollywood Improv: This was an acting challenge. Students had to choose a random character, setting, problem, plot, movie quote, and props to use in an original team-created movie trailer.
