• Ropes, string, or other dividing line


Divide the group into 3. Place 2 ropes (or any dividing lines) parallel to one another and about 8 ft apart, creating 3 spaces. 1/3 of the group goes into each space. GOAL: for one of the outer groups to send a 4 word message to the other outer group, with the center group doing its best to interfere with the process.

The facilitator can place time limits on it, or create a competitive atmosphere for the best time. Groups get alotted planning time. "Sender" group must let the facilitator know the message, "receivers" must send a representative to the facilitator with the correct message for the clock to stop. Groups rotate through all three roles.
