Saving Sam is a great Back To School activity that my students love to complete each year! Not only does it promote teamwork, but it requires students to problem solve as well.What I love about this activity, besides the fact that my kids think it's FUN, is that I get to see first hand their problem solving skills, their ability to work together as a group, and I get a glimpse of their writing skills.
