Two sturdy objects and a string is all you need to set up this team building initiative. For the students, however, the task gets a little more challenging. Their mission? Get their entire team under the “Electric Wire” without touching it. If the wire is touched, the entire team must go back to the beginning. With a few additional rules to make things more interesting, students will love taking on this challenge and learn leadership principles in the process.
Use this activity to help your students grow in their ability to work together to accomplish a goal and communicate effectively. Take some time at the end to work through the provided debrief questions to link principles and experience to life altering application.
