HUMAN KNOT is a classic classroom activity (not technically a drama game) that promotes group cooperation.

​How to play human knot



  • This is best played in groups of 6 - 8.


How to play this drama team game:

  • Student's stand in a circle, close their eyes and find 2 different hands to hold in the circle.

  • Students must make sure that they are holding 2 different students' hands and may need to adjust themselves when they open their eyes.

  • The groups must now work together to untangle the group without letting go of any hands. They will need to work together and communicate to move the group out of the knot.


Try this as a whole class or have a competition to see what group can untangle themselves first.

This team game is included in the FREE Drama Games PDF which you can download HERE!
