important things to know about team building activities
Important Things to KnowAbout Team-Building Activities
  • Practice giving clear, concise directions.
  • Be persistent, but flexible. If it really isn’t working, move to something else.
  • Do not tolerate negative attitudes and comments. Make sure there are specific consequences for students who are discouraging their peers.
  • Know your students’ limits and areas in which they need improvement.
  • Research new and creative activities so the students will remain interested and engaged.
ice breakers
Primary purpose- to break the ice!

This should be the first team-building activity.

Focus on similarities and common interests among students.

Work in pairs or small groups first, then whole-group activities.

Ice Breakers
interactive songs
Students will love and remember singing songs together.

It does not matter if you think you cannot sing! If you are enthusiastic, they will be, too.

Make sure the songs are easy to learn. Examples:

“Repeat After Me” songs

Songs with hand motions and actions

Songs with a simply melody and lyrics

Interactive Songs
team challenges
Make sure students are ready to face a challenge together.

It is crucial for all students to understand the rules entirely.

Adjust the activities to be challenging, but not impossible.

Allow students to make mistakes, but keep the rules intact.

Do not tolerate discouraging or negative comments.
