Are you looking for an activity to help create learning opportunities on issues dealing with communication, intention, rumors, and clarity? The Back Writing teambuilding activity is perfectd for all of these teaching situations.
The group is divided into small teams and each small team lines up. The game starts when the facilitator shows the people at the back of each line a diagram (example: smiley face).
Then the people at the back of their lines use their finger to draw on the back of the person in front of them - - attempting to transmit the message in such a way that enables that person to then draw on the back of the person in front of them.
The "message" (diagram) is sent through the line (organization) and the last person in line must draw an exact duplicate of what they feel drawn on their back.
No talking. :-)
