  2. 2. Brought To You By http://teambuildingactivitieshq.comTeam building is not only for adults or co workers, children of all agescan benefit from team building. The exercises and the activities willhave to be quite a bit simpler; they will also have to be moresimulating, but when done right these team building exercises willmake a huge impact. Students who do team building activities are saidto be more well rounded, trust worthy and caring children, and ofcourse this means they will grow up to become more productive adults.When you want to build the team bond of a classroom there are manysteps that you can take, and quite a few ideas that will help your classbecome a closer group of children. The first thing that you will want todo when starting a team building program is some ice breakers. Theseare short games and quizzes that will help the children loosen up andbecome more comfortable around the others. Some great ideas for icebreakers are:Who am I? Get each child to draw or write a few things aboutthemselves, they can share this with the group. This is a great way totell the others about yourself. Children who might not other wise sharewill really thrive from this.Create name tags: Get each child to create a name tag, for anotherchild. At the end of the activity they will find out who the child is thatthey made the name tag for.2 truths and a lie: Each child must say 3 things about themselves, 2being true and the other a lie. The group will then have to decide whichis true and which is false.All Rights Reserved © 2011 Team Building Activities HQ http://teambuildingactivitieshq.com
  3. 3. Brought To You By http://teambuildingactivitieshq.comTeam building activitiesSome of the best team building activities for children are games. Theywill help the children learn about one another in a fun and playfulmanor.Create a banner or flag: This banner of flag can be created by groups of3 or 4. Each flag will have to say something about each member of theteam. This is a great way to bring all the group personalities into oneplace. This will also give them something to show the other groups, anddisplay when games and activities are going on.Stacking cups: Stacking cups to create the tallest structure. Thisrequires a leader and people to follow out the plan. In this game thegroup will learn to work together to create the best possible result. Theteam with the highest and most complex structure will win.Although children’s team building requires a lot of time and planning, itcertainly pays off. Children can be hard to get along with and easilydistracted when they do not feel comfortable or at ease. When childrenwork with a group they will also learn to trust the people around them.Trust is one of the most important stepping stones in any relationship.If children can learn how to trust and be trusted early on, they willbecome highly involved adults. All of these activities can be done in theclassroom, making it affordable and easy to work on team buildingskills.All Rights Reserved © 2011 Team Building Activities HQ http://teambuildingactivitieshq.com
