Team building Games for Kids – Is This It? #43On August 10, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
During the exercise the team will form a circle. The trainer instructs to form pairs with someone you don’t know so well or with someone with you think you can cooperate a bit better. The duo’s decide who will be person A and who will be person B. The purpose of the exercise is that the other participants will point to an object while person B has closed his eyes. When person B opens his eyes, person A points to objects one by one while asking person B if the object he points to is the one selected by the others. Person B answers No if it’s not the object and Yes if it is the selected object. Because person B didn’t see which object the other participants picked it’s impossible to know when peron A points to the selected object. But therefore a code is being invented. Each duo separates from the rest and thinks of a code which person A will do to let peron B know what the selected object is. In this example: When I point to a red object when I ask if it’s the object then the object I will point to after that, is the selected object. Everyone will get back to the circle and the first duo begins. Because person A and B have made up a code it’s now very easy for person B to know what the selected object is. Person B closes his eyes and the rest of the group points to an object. When person B opens his eyes again person A begins to point at objects while asking person B if thats the selected object. The rest of the team tries to guess what the code is that person A and B are using. Is this it? No Is this it? No Is this the object? Yes! Someone thinks he cracked the code! I think because person A said the word ‘object’ person B knew that it was the selected object. This wasn’t the code. And person B closes his eyes again and the rest of the group point sto an object. If person B opens his eyes again person A will point to an object asking Is this it? No Is this it? No Is this it? No Is this it? Yes! I know it! someone from the group said. You point to a red object before you point to the selected object. It’s true. The code has been cracked and it’s the next duo’s turn. Go on like this until each duo has played the game. The trainer guides the team and applies variations. What kind of variations you can read below this video on YouTube. And haven’t you subscribed yet?
