Raft building is an excellent team activity for developing a variety of skills including:

  • planning

  • design and construction

  • communication

  • improving performance

  • cooperation

Your team are given a number of wooden spars, some large plastic barrels and lengths of rope. You have to build a raft that can transport the whole team across a stretch of water, hopefully without breaking apart or sinking. Once your team has discussed ideas and agreed a design you need to construct a sturdy ‘ship’. You then have the challenging job of working together to paddle it in the right direction to complete your journey.

This may take a few attempts and redesigns before you get something that works, but you are sure to have a lot of fun and are almost certain to get wet during the process.
