VIRTUAL TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES -
The resources below may prompt ideas for even better and more awesome virtual team building activities.  Be creative.  Feel free to modify for your team.  A good point is that when hosting your first "Conf Call" or "Video Chat", it's a good idea to ask each player how their Spring Break was, what they did, etc.... Let the kids "be a team" again, and then get into the activity that will help prompt further connections, engagement, and growth.
