Ropes Course Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Did you know that the British Royal Marines use an advanced ropes course as training for their troops? The course builds confidence and tests troops’ ability to overcome both physical and emotional obstacles. The same ideas are used in recreational ropes courses, which aim to build teamwork and cooperation, as well as boost confidence and leadership skills in participants. While many ropes courses offer lessons aligned during each activity, it is also worthwhile to reflect on the experience after the course. Ask students to describe their feelings during each part of the activity, what challenges they faced, and what strategies they used to overcome those challenges. Ask how these examples can be applied to real-life situations.
