The first days of school are hectic, but they lay the foundation upon which your future success will be built. To that end, team-building activities foster an atmosphere of fun, collaboration, and engagement. In Mr. Kiernan’s second class period, his new Civics students worked together to solve a murder mystery. Critical-thinking and pattern recognition are integral components to any endeavor, and this fun activity forced the students to develop both of these aspects, while also learning how to work with their new classmates! In doing so, they learned a little bit of what it takes to be #RamTough!
