Gather a group of friends for this challenge! Stand in a circle, each holding a piece of string of the same length. Attach the other ends of the strings to an elastic band. Collect some paper cups and build a cup castle, without using your hands! As a team, stretch the band over each cup to grab it and move it into position. Compete against other teams to see who can build the tallest tower!
After building your tower, brainstorm with your team to construct an understanding of what a ‘team player’ is or does.
Think about the skills of everybody in your team. Why were you able to reach your goal? What did each team member bring to the table?
