Middle Schoolers Participate in Global School Play Day
Tandem 5th through 7th graders took a break from their studies on Thursday afternoon, February 7, to join about 535,000 students around the world in the 5th annual Global School Play Day. The day was created by educators in a grassroots effort to support the importance of unstructured playtime for students around the world. On our campus alone, there were sightings of Yahtzee, Battleship, Cranium, Bananagrams, Scrabble, Jenga, Monopoly, Marbleworks, Hedbanz, card games galore, basketball, hands-on building projects, sketching, Capture the Flag and more. Some of the unstructured play began during lunchtime between 7th graders and their Big Badger mentors. 5th and 6th graders continued the play throughout the afternoon.
