Tip: Group Juggle
Using an energizer or team builder like Group Juggle provides a cooperative challenge. Adding constraints helps a team learn how to overcome obstacles and find success with support of the group. BUT the real power of any team builder lies in the debrief. Give teams time to look back and identify what led to their success as well as make connections to a relevant topic in the form of analogies, metaphors or comparisons. Here are some questions that might help your learners make connections to bigger concepts.
- What was necessary for this activity to be successful?
- What were the biggest challenges?
- What did you personally need to focus on to contribute to the team's success?
- What connections might you make between this activity and __________?
