The New Canaan Nature Center staff visited the East School fourth-grade classes to offer a hands-on team-building experience centered around collaboration and communication skills. In each challenge, students were asked to solve a problem in front of them by collaborating with different students in their class. Through this teamwork, students learned the importance of listening to others and how clear communication can help them reach a common goal.
This visit was the first of a two-part team-building series with the New Canaan Nature Center. The second part will take place in Spring 2023 when our fourth graders visit the Nature Center for more of these experiences.
We appreciate the support of the East PTC and the New Canaan Nature Center in making this partnership possible this year for the first time!
