  • Instructions:

The situation: A and B were flying a plane that suddenly developed engine trouble and crashed on a desert island with no water. They will be rescued in a few days, but they must have water if they are to survive. They have some materials for making a container to hold rainwater. The only problem is that B received a heavy blow on her head and is now both blind and mute. A has badly burned both hands and is not able to use them at all. But they must build the container if they are to live. A rain cloud is quickly approaching, and they must have the container finished before it reaches the island. A few drops are already beginning to fall. The observer ties A’s hands behind his back and blindfolds B. B is not to say a word during the entire building process. The observer takes notes on how well the two people work together. How good are the directions? How well are they carried out? How cooperative are the two people? If the container is not built in 20 minutes, the two people stop. Everyone assembles into a big group again to discuss.

  • Debriefing Questions:
  1. How did the person playing A feel? B? What did the observer notice?
  2. What does the container look like? If it were made of wood and nails instead would it hold water?
  3. What would have improved the cooperation between A and B?

Prui.

  • Supplies Needed: Blindfolds for each person.

  • Instructions:

The purpose of this teamwork games is to integrate team members and build trust and communication. Have each player take a blindfold and spread out on the floor. Ask those who feel comfortable to put their blindfolds on. Explain that you will tap someone on the shoulder; that person will be the “Prui” and will take off his/her blindfold. (None of the other players will know who the Prui is. Everyone will mingle around slowly (with bumpers up). Each time a player b umps into someone, they should shake his/her hand and ask, “Prui?” If the person says “Prui,” they are NOT the Prui. If the person does not answer you back, they ARE the Prui. Once a player finds the Prui, he/she should join hands with him/her and take off his/her blindfold. That person is now part of the Prui, so if someone bumps into him/her, they should NOT respond, so that person knows to join the Prui as well. Everyone will continue mingling around until they find the Prui chain. When everyone is part of the chain, the game is over. NOTE: This is a high trust activity, and should be done at an appropriate time.

  • Debriefing Questions:

  2. How did the blindfold make you feel during the activity?
