The middle school community at Tashkent International School is a lively, positive and talented group of young men and women in grades 6, 7 and 8. Last Friday during the Approaches to Learning (ATL) advisory time, all middle school students participated in the Amazing Race.
Students worked in mixed vertical teams and had to complete a series of challenges as quickly as possible. Teachers and students had lots of fun working together to complete the circuit amongst which were games like Candy Elevator, Brush with Danger, Card Ninja and Junk in the Trunk. The afternoon helped students identify themselves as members of a community, it helped them to develop their creative problem solving skills and to collaborate with their peers. It was an excellent start to the middle school year!
