Marker is attached to 8 strings, and the group has to write out a word by working together and only holding onto the last foot foot of each string. Great team building activity for upper elementary students.
Listening - Even though this says "listening game for adults", I think it would be great for the elementary classroom as well. It gives students the opportunity to strengthen listening skills as well as cooperation skills, plus it would be fun!
What a great positive group activity! Have one person sit on a chair in front of a white board while the others wrote a positive phrase about them. Take a picture to give to each person. A very creative and positive group activity.
