3. Production House
45 mins

In the Production House, the participants would need to replicate an object demonstrated by the facilitator. This task would have to be performed under various physical constraints to team members with instructions from the Team Leader.


  • Divide the group into four even teams; Select a team leader

  • Ask the 4 Team leaders to step out of the room with you (facilitator).

  • Tell them, that you all are Managers of a Production House, which makes customized products for the clients.

  • This time you will be making paper planes, in 5 mins, through your team.

  • Demonstrate the making of a paper plane, and ask them to commit a target, as to how many, can they manufacture, in 5 mins, through their teams

Communication by way of instruction down the line.

Working within the constraints of diversity of talent and ability.

The importance of communication under pressure.

4. Amoeba Race
30 mins

  • A fun game, using a basic biology concept of a cell

  • Requires cooperation, competition and close physical interaction. Useful as a simple activity to help a group get comfortable with one another.

  • Explain how to create an amoeba. There are 3 parts:

  • a lot of protoplasm (people who don't mind being close, gather together)

  • a cell wall (people who like to contain themselves & others, surround the protoplasm, facing outward, linking elbows)

  • a nucleus (someone with good eyesight and the ability to keep on top of things should be the nucleus, seated on the shoulders of some of the protoplasm)

  • Once the amoeba is formed, try taking a walk through a field or around the block. A rhythmic chant might be helpful for coordinating movements. (What sort of sound does a one-celled creature make?)

  • Finally, try a little cell division. Split into two, create a second nucleus and have an Amoeba Race.

Challenges – working in a team
5. Trust fall
15 mins

Divide the participants into teams of 10

Participants stand in a circle with one person in the center. The physical skills necessary for spotting are simple – ask participants in the outer circle to develop a firm, flexible stance by placing one foot in front and one foot behind with feet about shoulder-width apart.

Members of the circle place hands up at shoulder height with the person in center in catching position. The person in the middle then has 3 opportunities to “fall” towards members of the circle.

The person in the center starts the activity by stating “spotters ready”, members of the circle respond “ready”. Center person says “falling” and waits for outside circle to respond with “fall on”.

If the person in the center is confident, he or she can ask the group members to take a step back, creating a larger circle and greater distance between the faller and the spotters. Regardless of direction, everyone should go to catch.

To overcome challenges and for higher effectiveness, Trust is a very important constituent in Team work.
6. The Tallest Tower Optional


  • Chart papers

  • Cello tapes

  • Newspapers


The participants work to build the tallest free-standing tower they can with the supplies given.


The facilitators should ask the following questions of the entire group.

  • Raise your hand if you helped build a tower!

  • What worked well?

  • What challenges did you encounter and how did you overcome them?

  • Did you build the tallest tower you could? Why or why not?

And then to make the issues really hit home, you need to tie it back to collaboration and communication on your specific team or group:

  • How does building the tower in this activity compare to your daily work? or the way our group is organized?

  • How does this activity relate to being part of the larger company, organization, or group?

  • How can we encourage collaboration, communication, and sharing among the whole group?
