-Questions & Notes:

  • Teaching Tips

    • To make it easier to build the puzzle you might have a picture of each team's puzzle to help them help the blindfolded player assemble the puzzle.

  • Questions for understanding.

    • Clear communication skills and encouraging others are important aspects of leadership, particularly when it seems easiest to do it yourself.

    • Use this game to start a class discussion about the importance of clear communication, the importance of using many communication tools, the frustration of participants if communication is not absolutely clear, and how much easier it is for a leader to complete something rather than explaining it to someone else to complete.
