play a version of “The Floor is Lava” with bandanas in order to build connections and practice teamwork
To build connection among club members
To practice teamwork with club members
Predetermine a starting and ending point (Point A and Point B).
Mark the Point A and Point B with masking tape.
Gather bandanas (two less than number of students in club).
Explain the object of the game is for all group members to get from Point A to Point B only using the provided bandanas.
The goal is to get everyone across the bandanas without touching the floor (aka the peanut butter pit) in under 2 minutes.
At the completion of the activity, you can talk about how the activity was an example and proof that other people care and want to help (possibly provide specific examples/observations of students helping one another from the activity). Sometimes we do not even recognize the resources.
Was this something you felt like you could have done without talking to your group members? If so, would it have been easier or harder?
Did everyone seem to have the same goal in mind? Was everyone working together to try to achieve that goal?
How did asking for help aid your own mission to get across the line? Could you have gotten across alone?
