Form groups of 6 to 8 people. Challenge each group to create a machine out of their members by imitating the appearance and action of the machine with as many parts (gears, levers, etc.) as they can devise. The machine should have motion and sound, and include all team members.
(If a group is having trouble coming up with ideas some quietly shared examples might include becoming a blender, toaster, lawn mower, copy machine, lamp, a bottling plant, or washing machine.)
Give the teams five minutes to prepare their machine. Once the time is up, the teams take turns presenting and guessing each other’s machine.
