When asked how she thought of a good idea for the domino fall, Stephanie Aguilara said, “I just remembered that we did this in my social studies class.” What would you do differently next time? “I would NOT move the table!”When Travon Brooks was asked why he wanted to make such a huge domino fall, he said, “I really don’t know. I’m a creative person and I like to come up with good ideas. If I did it again, I would make sure that we would make better angles on the turns!”

Mr. Lazzo, 6th grade Ancient History teacher said, “I’ve been teaching for many years and I’d collected lots of jenga blocks. I got tired of building towers so I figured, ‘Let’s see if we can knock’em down instead of building ’em up!’ What inspired you to do the idea? “It wasn’t me–they got the idea and then ran with it!” If you could do it again, what would you change? “I’d get more blocks! We ran out. I’d like to see how far they could go with the trail they built! That was pretty cool!”

Dr. Skretta exclaimed, “I’ve seen a few team-building activities in classrooms this week, and wanted to share one, in particular, that Mr. Lazzo had his kids do. He challenged his students to work together and place domino pieces in a line around the entire room so that they’d all fall in order and completely. The attached video shows the result of one of his classes! You can feel the excitement build and explode!”
