Team Building Activities to Improve Teen Communication highschoolmediator.com/team-building-activities-to-improve-teen-communication/ Patricia Fioriello One of the best ways to improve communication skills in high school students is to involve them in team building activities. It will help the students interact with each other, and at the same time, enhance their communication skills. Team building is a way to teach students to efficiently work with a diverse group to solve a problem or complete a task. It requires communication skills and the ability to compromise as well as support others. Composition of Team Team building works best when the students are randomly divided into teams or a team is created by the teacher. The group assignments should consist of students with different strengths and students who are also not too familiar with each other. This will encourage the students to work and learn from individuals with different skills while solving a problem. Team building activities gear up the teens and should be designed to help students learn skills that improve their ability to work cooperatively with others. Types of Team Building Activities The best team building activities are both entertaining and educational and keep the teens focused on the aim of building their team.

Give each group two wooden planks to use to cross a large area. This activity is best when done in an outdoor area or a large room with enough space. Members of the group will pass forward one board while standing on the other in a single line until they arrive at the designated line or at the end of the room. No team member can step off the board. The goal of this activity is to promote communication, coordination, cooperation and team work so that they can finish the line quickly.
