Example of practical training for team building


  1. Over the electric fence
  2. Imagine two chairs connected with a wire at about 1m high. Imagine this is an electric fence. If you touch it, you’re dead. Even worse… everyone is dead, because all the students must stay connected as well, and just like with an electric fence, if one person touches it, the electric shock guides through all the persons until the last one. Good thing it’s not really loaded with electricity. The goal is to get over the fence while holding hands. It’s a real challenge, as not everyone can just jump over it. It takes real teamwork to succeed.
  3. The human knot
  4. Let your students stand in a circle, giving hands. Now, students have to tangle themselves by walking in between students in front of them, going over or under locked hands. They can also go between other students’ legs. They have to make a knot keeping their hands locked to the other students. Now, two other students need to work together and give instructions to the human knot. They have to find a way to untangle it.
