Adventure 101…The Top 20
These are the "best ever" Adventure activities as voted on by my students through the years. At the end of each semester and again at the end of the year I ask(ed) my students what were their favorites/least favorites. The activities presented here are all from the "top 20" list from our students. These are the ones that made them move, made them think (problem solve), made them laugh (or at least smile), and made them come together as a "family". The best part of these activities is that they are all inclusive and beg you to join the fun...you will use them tomorrow!
