Lesson Plan

Human Knot

Employability skills are difficult to measure but are essential in the workplace. Introduce high schoolers to employability skills with the Human Knot activity. Groups of six grab hands to form a human knot and untangle themselves. The class then generates a list of the skills that helped them complete the activity.
