Perfect for a classroom
I'm a school librarian, and I lent a copy of this book to a couple of teachers at the school, and they are both going nuts for it. The book has a wide variety of activities - some are 'thinking' activities like word games, and one teacher is planning to use them when she needs to keep her students occupied for a few minutes. She is so excited to have a bunch of resources other than Mad-Libs! Then there are team challenges that involve solving some sort of problem together using materials. And also there are challenges that are perfect large-motor-skills activities for when kids need to burn off some energy. The activities can be used (or modified) for a wide range of ages. I can see this book becoming a favorite resource for teachers, scout leaders, homeschooling parents, pretty much anyone who works with kids. Some of the activities would even be perfect for birthday parties. The author has worked with kids for years and it really shows. This is a perfect gift for a teacher.Was this review helpful?

Wow! I wish I had this book when I first started managing teams - my first years would have been SO much easier! The introduction to this type of challenge is so helpful and the challenges are so much fun. You have to try the improv activities ¿ what a hoot!Was this review helpful?
