This helpful resource is designed to offer teachers, facilitators, and parents a wide variety of activities designed to cultivate children's problem-solving skills while fostering cooperation between group members. These hands-on projects teach children to experiment with building methods, discover new uses for everyday items, try on new personas, and express themselves as they work toward a solution as a team. Team members are required to think outside the box, communicate clearly, and cooperate with each other in order to complete each task. Activities include planning a five-day trek through the mountains; building a bridge out of marshmallows, straws, and paper; and moving a group of ping-pong balls from one location to another without touching the balls directly. Children will learn not only from each other, but also from observing how other teams navigate the tasks.

Fun and Versatile.

This book is a lot of fun. Kris Bordessa has managed to come up with an array of original communication activities suitable for all ages. These would work very well as ice-breakers at the start of a new year as well as for mixing things up a bit as the year goes on. I find that even the most confident of kids stay faithful to their own little pod of friends, and simply asking them to work with someone different on a regular class activity seems to stifle creativity if anything. Bordessa's ideas are fresh, with the right balance of competitivity to motivate all the kids to participate. They are also ridicule free. The kids may laugh at themselves doing some of the challenges, but they won't laugh at each other. The underlying tone of these activities is reassuringly nurturing. Most of them can be used to structure a whole session, but there are several I will be adding to my arsenal of 'loose-end' activities: if a class finishes too early, or just a few of the students do, I can set them to working on one of these. List twenty things that come in pairs? Not as easy as you might think, but I can guarantee some entertaining results!
