Back to Back is a fun energetic activity with a strong and simple message about collaborative work, and the importance of aligning forces towards the same direction.
Running the activity:
- Instruct participants to find a pair of similar height 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 arms and backs together.
This activity is really fun. People will laugh. Typically, a few pairs will be able to stand up faster, while others will have a hard time. Be sensitive to the group and only run this activity if appropriate.
