Recess in the rain... and snow... and... | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Whether it’s snow, rain, poor air quality, or extreme cold, inclement weather can put a kink in school recess. Kids need physical activity every day. Students benefit from play outdoors, including the fresh air, sunlight, increased space to run and even the change of scenery. Time outside is healthy and helps students return to the classroom ready to learn again. Parents and educators can help children get their necessary daily physical activity regardless of the weather conditions.

Few factors in the workplace have more impact on productivity than the ability of co-workers to perform as a team. However, not every business has the resources or time to dedicate to professional grade training programs to enhance those skills. Ideally, a human resources department could find a low cost tool that could encourage team activities and cooperation. Creative games using Lego building blocks are inexpensive and engaging ways to help develop teams.

Skills Converged > Team Building Exercise: Don’t Spill the Water

Skills Converged > Team Building Exercise: Don’t Spill the Water | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Purpose

This is an exercise similar to the popular team building exercise on handling toxic waste. The major difference here is that participants need to handle a glass of water and don’t spill it while carrying it from one location to another.

The exercise is ideal for teamwork, leadership and resource management. The competitive atmosphere leads to rapid decision making, activity coordination, and novel ways to compromise and get the task done.

 

Objective

Carry a glass of water from one location to another without spilling any water or touching the glass, using only the materials provided.

Following is a synopsis of some diversity activities that our colleagues have posted online. However, before we get into any specifics, we should remember Lee Duffy’s words of wisdom: “When facilitating any activity to do with diversity, it is so important to be prepared for strong emotional responses from participants, as you dig and get to the bottom of issues such as bias and inequity, which is invariably these activities head. People don’t like having the things that make them human exposed in public forums generally.”

David Weedmark has written a good and simple post about Team Building Activities With Lego Bricks on eHow where he has summarised well the core essence of using Lego Serious Play in team building activities. Nice photos by Laura Beth Drilling from Demand Media

Lego isn’t just about fun and games. For team building exercises, working with Lego helps enhance creative and critical thinking skills while giving employees an opportunity to — at least to some degree — act like kids again. In fact, development coaches have been using Lego for years in team-building exercises.

Skills Converged > Team Building Exercise: Take it Without Touching | Serious Play | Scoop.it

This is a simple but fun team building exercise most suitable for outdoors. This exercise can also be a fun activity for kids. You can run competitively and give a prize to the winner. It helps to train people on staying focused while being totally aware of their environment and the dynamic changes. A winner must be good at predicting what others are going to do while keeping them guessing on he would do.
