9. Sidecar Rules Each team has enough parts to assemble a sidecar. Each team is provided instructions on how to assemble a sidecar. In addition to the items included in the kit, each team is provided bowls and pens.

10. The Sidecar Exercise Your mission: Create rules to run the Sidecar Exercise that will meet the exercise’s goals. The goals: To teach the importance of teamwork. To teach the importance of intra-team communication. To teach the importance of intra-team cooperation. To teach the importance of cross-training.

12. Teamwork Exercise 2 The Archipelago
