Team Building Exercise-The objective of this challenge is for the team to work together to navigate a ball around a tarpaulin for as long as possible without the ball falling through a hole or off the tarp completely.
Cooperative Game-The team must make the ball travel around each of the holes. The ball can’t fall off. Challenge students to maneuver the colored balls around or into the matching holes
Emphasis on Communication-Students hold the tarp and work together to lift it up or down to move the balls. They need to effectively communicate and synchronize their movements to be successful. A rope cord sewn into the edges provides a slight lip, helping students keep balls on the tarp and giving them a good grip.
Suggested Learning Outcomes-Communication,Cooperation,Problem solving,Reviewing and reflection.
Variety of Activities-The game is appropriate for students of all ages and accommodates up to 25 students at once. Set includes hole tarp (85”L x 57”W), 8 balls (1.6″ dia), a storage bag.
