Game of 21
We played the game of 21 with kids from Vidyaniketan School in Chennai last week. The game is to teach kids the importance of coordination, planning and collaboration. As a team, the kids need to count from 1 to 21. But at any point of time, only one person needs to say a number and it should not go in a serial order/pattern. First the game is conducted without allowing any discussions between the team members. Later the teams are allowed to plan/strategize. It was interesting to see how they planned the sequence – Members sitting opposite to each other need to say the numbers, other team divided the numbers equally between the different team members and then a simple roll number based arrangement!
