6 Unique Team Building Classroom Games for the students

Story Making

Divide the students into a three to four groups and form a cirle ,give each a unique picture of what ever comes to your mind, like people, places,  animals, objects , you can also make use of an old magazine , tear it apart , and give the pages to students . You begin a story with whats there in the page that you are holding and the next student continues the story with his or her page content . the first group should start the story and the other group should continue and the last group should conclude the story in a very logical manner


Print the name of the each student on different sheets , then distribute the sheets among the students , each student will write one or two positive characteristic of the of student printed on the sheet , and will pass on the sheet to other student, till everyone has written on the others

Human Knot

Ask Students to stand in a circle and evryone joins hands with someone else. players should join hands with someone positioned across the circle and not the person standing next to him or her. each person must hold hands with two different people. without letting go of anyone’s hand, everyone must work together to untangle the knot.

Newspaper Article

Split the students into smaller groups, and give each group a Newspaper.  Each group should tear apart the newspaper into smallest peices possible.  (don’t tell them what the next steps are at this point).

Now check if the job is done as asked , and now divide the torn newspaper among the group members and when this step is done .

There comes the final step ask them to rearrange the torn part into the complete newspaper, so that article can be read.

The lesson from this game is that some things (relationships, trust, reputation, newspapers!) are easy to tear apart but more difficult to put back together.

Newspaper Tear Team Building Game



Another classic team-building game. Arrange some sort of obstacle course and divide students into teams. Students take turns navigating the “mine field” while blindfolded, with only their teammates to guide them. You can also require students to only use certain words or clues to make it challenging or content-area specific.

The Worst-Case Scenario

Fabricate a scenario in which students would need to work together and solve problems to succeed, like being stranded on a deserted island or getting lost at sea. Ask them to work together to concoct a solution that ensures everyone arrives safely. You might ask them to come up with a list of 10 must-have items that would help them most, or a creative passage to safety. Encourage them to vote — everyone must agree to the final solution.
