Start the school year out right with an active team-building game!
Each team has an "architect", a "runner", and one or two "builders." The architect designs a building using interlocking building blocks, but the builders are unable to see the original design. They must rely on precisely worded instructions from the runner to bring the architect's vision to life. Which team will get the closest match? The fastest time? Have the most creative design?
This activity comes with four alternate activities that can accommodate:
-classes wanting more of a challenge
-rotating roles within the game
I've also designed a few other games for first day activities, leadership training or to be used as critical thinking exercises:
Can you select the right items and take the best actions to survive on a hostile tropical island?
- Toxic Waste:
Can your team imagine a way to transport a "deadly" substance before the other teams?
I have these as well as longer games that work well in history and civics classrooms at my store: Gov Games and Lesson Plans
