Blinded Number Line

Required: Blindfolds and numbered tags
Players: Small to large groups

Provide blindfolds for all the players. You can have players bring a blindfold or make them out of cheap thick material. Set up teams into groups of 5-7 players. Every player will get one blindfold and will be instructed that they will receive a small tag with a number. They are to read that number to themselves and not let any other player see it. They cannot talk or even react when they read the number because that could give it away. Once all players have read their number they will be instructed to put on their blindfolds. When the leader of the game signals, all players on each team will try to put their members into a numerical order line. When they have accomplished this and are correct they are the winners. But it’s not that easy because here is how you’ll number each set of tags for each team: negative 2, negative 1, zero, 1 and 2. This numbering system is for 5 players per team. Just add additional numbers for larger teams. If your working with lower grade school players try 2, 4, 5, 9, and 11, that system can cause enough confusion. The game will require all players to work as a team as they cannot talk. They can only communicate with their hands to communicate their numbers.

What a neat team building game. After this game have players reflect on how frustrated they felt when they were handicapped on communicating information. How do the disabled feel when they cannot communicate?
