One of our favourite team-building activities is the Tire and Pole
The task is for students to lift a rubber tire up and over an upright wooden pole
They come up with some crazy, innovative and outrageous ways to support each other, carry each other and stay balanced
Sometimes the tire is able to pass over the pole, sometimes not.
But in all cases, the activity is a success.
You see, the point about Tire and Pole isn't about how high you can get the Tire; neither is it about the height of the Pole.
The point of Tire and Pole is how well you carry each other- and if you can do that without letting each other fall, then you know that you have made a friend you can depend upon.
