Problem Solving for young people of all abilities

Problem solving task examples
Teams start the task on one side of a large spider’s web, the team must cross through the web without touching it, as this will awaken the spider. The team must work together to help each other through. Great to learn proper lifting skills and talking in turn and listening to others.
Teams step onto two large skis, one foot on either ski. Using ropes to hold and communicating with each other the team must start to walk a set route. Timing and teamwork is crucial for success.
Teams are presented with a tube with many holes in. A plastic duck must be rescued that has fallen into the tube. In order to do this the team must fill the tube with water to raise the duck to the top. The water will leak from the holes in the tube, in order to succeed the team must work together to block the holes using only themselves.
