Name of Activity:
Twisted Sisters Disco Inferno
Purpose of Activity:To have students work together to solve a problem.
Suggested Grade Level:6-12
Description of Idea
Have a small group of students (5-6) hold hands in a straight line, all facing in the same direction. The person at the end puts their hand up against a wall or holds onto a pole.
The task is for everyone, including the person with their hand around the pole or up against the wall, to end up with their arms folded across their chest.
None of the students can let go of their hands and the person at end must keep hand on the wall or pole. There are a number of known ways to solve this problem. Give the students plenty of time to discuss possible solutions.
We hope your students come up with more answers!
