#TheKidsNeedtoKnow

Check out this video and meet Kid President. The Kid President project was created by Robby and his Uncle Brad because they believe kids can change the world, and so can grown ups - but it takes all of us working together. In this video, Robby (Kid President) shares what he believes kids need to know, and asks for others to share what #thekidsneedtoknow. 



Below are the pictures that our facilitators have been drawing about what they believe #thekidsneedtoknow.

We would love to hear from you too! Share what #thekidsneedtoknow with us in comments or on Facebook.

DIY Dynamix - Team Bingo


Materials:
Bingo Card and Action Cards (click below for PDF attachments)
1 marker per team
1 hula hoop per team
1 ball per team (replaced with a bucket of water balloons in the summer)

Setup:
  • Divide group into teams of at least 5.
  • Print out one Bingo card per team and one set of action cards (choose the version with or without water balloons). Cut up and shuffle the set of action cards.
Goal:
·         To complete a line or fill the Bingo card as a team.

How to Play:
  • Pull out an action card and complete the activity. The first team that completes the action gets to mark off the square on their Bingo card that matches the action completed.
  • Once a team completes a line or square the round ends.
  • There will be duplicates of action cards. This will allow teams to work on improvement strategies.  
Rules:
  • Team must complete the task first to be able to mark off the square.
Variations:
  • Can play as one team for smaller groups.
  • Decide on if the team is playing for a line or square based on time permitted.
  • Choose between action cards with or without water balloons.
Possible Discussion Questions:

  • How did your team work together to complete tasks?
  • Did the tasks get easier as you continued the game? Why?
  • Were there any leaders on your team?

The Dynamix team will now be providing a new challenge each month for your class, family or team.

This June, we challenge you to get outside! It’s raining? That’s okay - spend two hours outside tomorrow or, better yet, throw on your rain gear and get out there!

Join in on the fun and be sure to share your experiences with us in the comments below or on Facebook. Check back next month for another great challenge!

Get inspired to join in on the challenge by checking out the short TED talk below about setting and achieving goals in 30 days.
