Back to back is a fun energetic activity with a strong and simple message about collaborative work.
Running the activity
- Instruct the participants to find a pair of similar size and weight
- Ask everyone to sit on the floor, back to back with their pair
- Ask the pairs to hold their arms while keeping their backs together
- Tell everyone their goal is to stand up, while keeping the arms and backs together
This activity is really fun. People will laugh. Typically a few pairs will be able to stand up fast while others have a hard time. Consider not running this activity if you feel some participant is not capable of standing up, or they will feel bad by sitting on the floor.
