Year 7 Curriculum Day Tuesday 10 th October 2006 Team-building Working together Problem solving Facing challenges Having fun
Problem-Solving Challenge 1 Radioactive Isotopes In the centre of the circle is a silver bucket containing deadly radioactive isotopes. You must work as a team to lift the bucket and tip the isotopes into the black safety bucket. You are not allowed to enter the radioactive zone (marked out) so the only way you can lift and tip the bucket is to use the ropes attached.
Problem-Solving Challenge 2 Leaky pipe Stay in your 2 teams. First fill your bucket with water. Each team will have a pipe with a table tennis ball inside. You must work as a team to fill the pipe with water and collect the ball from the top. There will be a short distance between the pipe and the bucket. You cannot tip the pipe upside down!
Problem-Solving Challenge 3 Cross The Swamp Your group will split up into two teams. Each team will be given equipment that they can use to get themselves across the poisonous swamp. Each team must work together to ensure that every member of the team gets safely across, and that all the equipment gets across too. Whilst crossing the swamp you must follow these rules: you cannot throw equipment on the floor (it will be taken off you) and members of your team must not allow any part of their body to touch the floor (the whole team will have to start again if this happens).
Problem-Solving Challenge 4 Line Up Your group needs to split into three equal teams. Each team will have a bench. They should stand on the bench and then follow the leader’s instructions. No-one can step down off the bench until they have completed the task.
Communication Challenge 1 Centipede The group will be split into teams of 4. Each team will have 2 planks that have ropes tied to them. The challenge is to have every member of the team standing with one foot on each plank, and then to walk as a team to the finish line. No member of the team may touch the floor.
Communication Challenge 2 Blindfold Obstacle Course For this challenge, you will work in pairs. One of you will be blindfolded. Your partner must lead you safely around the course. Whilst you are leading think about the type of communication you are using.
Communication Challenge 3 Call your partner Your group will split into pairs. One of the pair will be blindfolded. Using appropriate and agreed on communication, you need to direct your partner towards you. Your partner cannot take off their blindfold until they reach you.
Communication Challenge 4 Square Dance Your group will work together on this challenge. Each member of the group will be blindfolded and asked to hold on to part of a long rope. Without removing your blindfolds, you need to organise yourselves into a square. When you think you’ve finished, lay the rope on the floor and take off your blindfolds.
Physical Challenge 1 Orienteering You will work with a partner to find your way around the school site. Using a map, you will find the controls (marked as a red circle on your maps). At each control there will be a question to answer. You must write down the answer on your sheet next to the correct number.
Physical Challenge 2 Get knotted! Your group will split into 4 equal teams. Each team will be given a short length of rope. Your task is to tie as many knots in the rope as you can in one minute. After that time you will swap your rope with another team. The challenge is to see which team can untie all the knots in their rope first.
Physical Challenge 3 Group Sit The group should stand in a circle. Everyone needs to turn so they are facing the same way. On the word ‘Go’, everyone sits on the knees of the person behind them. You need to work together, otherwise, you’ll fall over!
Physical Challenge 4 Hoop Race Your group will be split into two equal teams. Each team will be given a hoop. Form a circle and hold hands. One pair lets go and has a hoop placed over one arm before joining hands again. The challenge is to move the hoop around the circle without any person letting go of the hand they are holding. This is a race!
Physical Challenge 5 Rope Run Two people need to turn the rope. Each member of the group takes it in turn to run under the rope whilst it’s turning to the other side. Then do this in pairs, linking hands. Then in 4’s, 8’s and then the whole group. Consider how you are going to get everyone to run at the same time.
