Header: Group Activity

The Captain of the plane that has been rented to take 11 fans to the wheelchair girls' basketball team game knows her plane has only a 3 foot by 3 foot cargo area. She's asked the fans to bring only small suitcases, but she's still worried that the cargo area won't be large enough for all the suitcases to fit. Your class can help her make sure that everyone can get all their clothes and pompons on board.

1) Everyone in the group should find or bring in some type of container--a suitcase, a box, etc.

2) Someone in the group should measure and mark off a 3 foot by 3 foot area of the classroom with masking tape.
