To practice cooperation through communication


Group reflection exercise (20 minutes)


This activity can be done outside in the fresh air! Or in a classroom

  • Get the whole class into a circle in the middle of the room
  • Form a circle with arms out, just overlapping
  • Put the arms down then walk towards the middle of the room
  • When they are all squashed in the middle have them hold hands with someone on the other side of the circle. Different alternate hands is are essential
  • Then slowly stretch the circle out
  • Recap 10 minutes - Break into groups of 4 and discuss the key characteristics of a ‘successful team’. What helped them to unravel? What were the ‘success factors’? Write them down on a whiteboard, have a discussion.

The aim: to unravel the circle! To be standing as they were at the beginning of the activity.
