Materials

    Instructions

    Setting: An open space to move around, a piece of rope around 4 meters long

    Number of participants: 4-12

    Time needed: 30 minutes

    Ask a team to form a straight line, and give them a long piece of rope so that each person is holding on to the rope. Have the team close their eyes, and tell them to form a shape:

    • square
    • triangle/pentagon
    • star (advanced)
    Once they're convinced they're as close as possible, have them set their rope on the ground, open their eyes and look at what they've created.
    Ask the team to think about the team learning process that they went through to arrive at their creation:
    • How did you start?
    • Who took the lead?
    • Why did you let them take the lead?
    • How did you know when you were finished?
    • What was especially effective or ineffective about your problem solving technique?
    • What does that say about you as a team? Are any of the conclusions from this exercise also true about the team's problem solving challenges?

    Usual or Expected Outcomes: The group notices aspects of their interaction that they may have been unaware of.
