Yesterday, high school students got the chance to help elementary kids race their wooden C02 cars. The elementary students made the cars with the help of their big buddies in the Shop class. While the big buddies did most of the work with the power tools, the elementary students got to drill the holes in the car and sand the car down.
The goal of this activity was to build trust between the younger kids and the older kids, to make sure the kids weren’t scared to be around/work with the higher grades in the school. An important part of our school is building relationships between older and younger students.
The kids looked like they were having fun and the older kids enjoyed it too as well. It was a great activity set up to bring bring the school together and make the students more connected.
