playing the building
team cooperation and communication
The learning goal of this exercise is team cooperation and communication in a game format using LEGO® bricks. No one can solve the game if they play on their own without counting on the team. It looks like if it is an individual activity, but it is teamwork.
The second learning goal is to understand external and internal dependencies among the different players. Each team member is in charge of a specific task until they don’t understand this and cooperate; they can’t develop the building.
The third learning goal is leadership and project management since no indication of colours and number of bricks are given for level 7th. A decision has to be made. In most of the cases, the one who is the leader of the project doesn’t show. Due to the constraint apparently because of the game rules. However, authentic leadership shows in the table taken by another player when the game gets stuck.
