It’s September and time to get back to school! At the beginning of the year, establishing routines is a must. Why not include collaboration and teamwork as part of that routine? This month’s challenge provides the opportunity to focus on teamwork. As they say, teamwork makes the dream work. Your challenge is to work together to build two exact structures out of building materials. Half of the team will get a structure already built or not, but then guide the other half of the team to build the same thing.
Your team does have some criteria and constraints. Your team will consist of 4-6 people. Both team halves (2-3 people) will get identical building supplies. But your team cannot see each other or the building materials. There should be a divider put between the team halves, so the structures cannot be seen. One half is the guide team instructing the other half to build the same structure.
