SEL Toolkit- Collaboration Activity
The Channels Activity included is this toolkit encourages participants to work with each other and solve problems together. The activity also encourages communication, goal setting and developing awareness skills.
Participants have to transport marbles from point A to point B and deliver the marble inside the plastic bucket using the provided channels. If one marble falls, students have to start from the beginning. The group has to work together to put the channels together to transport the marble, usually participants need to move around and find creative solutions since simply putting the channels together won’t be enough to transport the marble.
After the activity is completed, a peace circle is formed to discuss the experience and insight of the students. Students are asked questions like “Why is it important to support each other?”
