Weinberg Elementary - (2018-2019) Kati Barrera and Karen Schwalenberg's 6th grade classes at Weinberg recently played a game of "Hot Lava." Hot Lava is a team building activity with an emphasis on communication. The object is to get their entire team across the lava field without burning up! The only way to get across is to use the special "lava-proof paper" provided. Students were in teams of 6 to 7 and provided with 8 pieces of paper. If anyone stepped off of the paper, the entire team had to start over.
