Trust KidType:  Ensemble Building.

Purpose:

  • Encourage comfortability among the group.
  • Encourage trust.

Procedure: 

  • This is a silent activity.
  • Students work in pairs.
  • Partner 1 is instructed to close their eyes as partner 2 leads them around the space.
  • Partner 2’s goal is to make their partner feel as safe as possible. They must determine what is best for their partner (without talking) – walking with both hands held, one hand held, arm around shoulder, etc.
  • Let them wander for 2 minutes or so, keeping their movement slow at all times. Switch.

Reflection:

  • How did you make your partner feel safe? What did your partner do that made you feel safe?
