Day 3 - Gemini Jr. High

My favorite part of today was the team building exercise.  The students made a circle by connecting plastic straws to each other.  Each student was given a straw and after it was assembled they placed it on the ground. They weren't allowed to talk and had to finish the task before the song ended.  I loved the analogy.  The circle is a powerful symbol.  A week link or straw disconnected makes the circle incomplete.  The music ensemble is a team and a bond is formed by everyone involved in a team or ensemble.  I'm feeling overwhelmed by a whole new set of names to learn, but otherwise LOVING IT!
