Review

  • What do you know now that you did not know before?  
  • How did you have to work as a team?  
  • What was the hardest part? 

Keep it Simple

  • Start by doing this activity without blindfolds to get an idea of how a square feels when you’ve made one. Then, try the activity again with blindfolds on. 
  • Rather than everyone being blindfolded, have one person keep their eyes open and help direct the group. 

Take it Further

  • How can you add another layer of challenge to this activity?
