Each participant gets one gutter. The object is to move the marble from point A to point B without dropping the marble. Generally, as the facilitator you can make the pathway to point B as easy or as difficult as you like, depending how well your group works together. You can take them over obstacles, down stairs, around trees, etc. Get as creative as you like.
A variety of 30 colored 15″ gutters, small container, marbles, directions, and stuff sack included.
Here is a testimonial from one of our customers:
“We are teaching the Franklin Covey 7 Habits for Highly Successful Teens curriculum. One of the habits is Synergy, which teaches the power of a group of two or more people working well together. I have had a blast facilitating the ‘Gutter Ball’ activity. There is no better way to teach kids how important it is to work together as a team. By the end of the workshop and after a few practice runs, the students are fluid in their ‘choreography’ to move the little ball across the room and over obstacles to the ‘magic’ cup. At the close of the activity, we have some pretty insightful thoughts on how and why their team was successful.”
