Students at Riverview Middle School in Plymouth participated in the second annual Mullet Mud Fest on May 30-31 at the school. The event promotes cooperative challenges, teamwork and getting messy.
The challenges included:
? Mullet Mission: Working in groups of five, teams on giant inner tubes had to get to the middle of the Mullet River using their hands and feet and tag a target, before they were pulled back to shore by the remaining members of their homeroom.
? Bystander Blast: Students maneuvered through obstacles while staff members sprayed them with water.
? Swamp Slither: Students entered a "swamp" feet first, then tried to travel through and exit without knocking down noodles.
? Midnight Maze: Blindfolded students crawled through a maze.
? Sack race: Pairs of students participated in a traditional sack race.
? Don't Burst the Bubble: Pairs tossed bubbles back and forth as many times as possible, moving back after each toss, trying not to burst the bubbles.
? Swamp Search: Teams had to find as many plastic bugs and snakes as possible in a muddy kiddie pool.
? Bucket Brigade: Students passed leaky buckets of water along a line, trying to be first to fill a bucket at the end of the line.
? Foam Frenzy: Students crawled through a foam pit.
? Mud Slide: Students slid down a wet tarp on their bellies.
? Musical Mud Wash: Students sitting in circles passed buckets of water around until the music stopped, then those holding the buckets could dump it on themselves to stay in the game or dump it on a teammate and leave.
