Draw out a marking within the circle using chalk, where the bottle is to be
shifted to.

Using the four strings and not stepping into the area bounded by the circle,
try to move the bottle into the centre of the circle as marked out in the
shortest time possible. The bottle must not topple over.

Possible Variations

Other items, aside from a bottle, can be used

Process

How did you cooperate as a team to move the bottle in the direction
you wanted?
Was there anyone who stepped up as a leader to direct the group?
Were there times when you felt that the task was impossible? Why?

Practical Application

How can we keep people moving forward to achieve a goal?
Have you experienced a situation in a group task when everyone talked
and nobody cared to listen?
