ICEBREAKERS & ENERGIZERS

a.k.a. ACTIVITIES THAT ARE JUST PLAIN FUN


The following activities can be used in a variety of ways. They can be used for beginning of the year activities, energizers for breaks during standardized tests, team building activities, etc. They work for almost any age group--try some at the next faculty meeting. Some of them will guarantee a good laugh!

'f you do this with adults, you can use the &lvis idea. )Sorry, can you tell '*m a fan+, %un a copy for each person. The students are to get the signature of a person who meets the criteria for each section. -ou might want to implement a rule that a person can only sign another person*s paper in two spots. The first person with a completed card wins. .on*t forget to include the teacher. /ut in something to which only -01 can answer yes. $or example, for mine ' put #married to a detective.# y teammate put #adopted two children from 2azikstan# for hers.

.ivide students into groups of three or four. 5ive each group a large sheet of butcher paper and a different color marker for each person. 3ave them draw a 6enn diagram with an oval for each student. The students in each group are to discuss what their similarities and differences are. 7fter the discussion, they are to fill in the diagram showing their similarities and differences. 'f a group has a hard time getting started, give them some guidance by asking 8uestions such as, #"hat is your favorite music+#, #"hen is your birthday+#, #"hat sports do you like+, or #"here were you born+#

Some of my 9??@-9??A students taught me this one. 7t first, ' was reluctant to play because of the name )which ' have changed., 3owever, once ' saw how harmless it was, and more importantly how much fun the players were having, ' couldn*t resist. )' love teaching Bth grade!, .esign a system for secretly identifying the #criminal# and the #cop.# "e used a deck of cards. -ou only need enough cards so each player may have one card. 0ne card needs to be a Cack--the criminal, and one needs to be an ace--the cop. 7ll of the other cards should be below ten in rank.

=et each person draw and keep a card, without showing it to anyone. The criminal needs to recruit other criminals by winking at them, but without getting caught by the cop. 7ny person who sees a wink is to wait a few seconds, so as not to be obvious, and then say, #' committed a crime.# That person then turns in his card and is out of the game. /lay continues until the criminal recruits all players without being caught by the cop, or the cop identifies the criminal. 'f the cop misidentifies the criminal, he loses the game.

#$rder
This is a variation on the 4riminal .ealings game. Same set up with a deck of cards. 4hoose the number of cards needed according to the number of players. (e certain that the Dueen of Spades is in the deck. 7ll players draw cards. The player who chooses the Dueen of Spades is the murderer. Throughout the other activities, the murderer kills victims by winking at them. "hen someone catches the eye of the killer and is winked at, they are killed and )here is the fun part, can die in any manner they want. Some die 8uietly by dropping overE others die in a dramatic finale. The obCect of all other players is to a, not get killed and b, try to identify the murderer. ' think you can make a case for using this in "riting - about the experience, about fear and anticipation and how that clouds activities, about processing fear, relaxing, then being alert again, etc. Submitted by 5wen&llyn

S!*es 0!*- 2*-er Ga,es1 Icebreakers1 and Ener !"ers Warmups and Energizers
Warmups or energizers are activities the trainer uses throughout the course to encourage participant involvement and interaction. These activities may be used at the beginning of each day to bring the group together and begin work on a positive note. They may also be used during the day to recharge the group (e.g., after lunch, after a long presentation). Here are number of warmups and energizers you can use. The trainer gives the participants slips of paper, and asks them to write down at least three things they would like to learn during that day s activities. The participants attach their slips to a poster board or piece of flipchart paper, which is posted in the classroom. The trainer can then review these e!pectations with the group and tell them which topics will and will not be covered. This activity can also help the clinical trainer focus the course on individual or group learning needs and interests. Super Model Exercise Objective " #ce breaker or energizer " $reat for laughs and rela!ation. %hedding of status and roles. Time required "&"'( minutes. Space requirements " big enough for participants to form a circle. How to do it:

'. )rrange participants in a circle. *. #nstruct participants that they have to act out your instructions. When pointed to and given the following commands+ "Super Model" " ,articipant should immediately pose as a fashion model. The two participants alongside the participant acting as a super model (the one on the left and the right) take the role of photographers and mimic gestures of taking a photo. "Elep ant"" ,articipant poses as an elephant by immediately thrusting two hands held together in front to represent the elephant-s trunk. The two participants alongside form a circle with their hands and place them on the side of the participant pointed to serve as .ears. of the elephant. "!ello" " ,articipant shakes his or her body like /ello continuously. The two participants alongside hold each other-s hands and form a circle around the target participant. The idea is to form a .glass. around the /ello. ""ueen #ee" " ,articipant turns around and puts his or her hands together behind the back (/ust above the buttocks) and flutters them back and forth to mimic a bee-s tail. The two participants alongside thrust their arms away from the bee and flutter them like wings. "$on%e&" " participant and those alongside him or her should freeze and not move at all 0!pect that people will be confused and make mistakes. %uch mistakes generate laughter and fun. To make the e!ercise competitive, participants who make a mistake (both the one pointed to and the two participants alongside him or her) can be eliminated from the game. The e!ercise can be used several times in a meeting or seminar. 1ontributed by 2en 3ozare, 4H5611, 'ational (nt em ) This warmup works best when you have participants from a number of countries. To conduct this warmup, you will need a source of music (tape player or radio) and a ball. The participants should stand in a circle. The trainer puts on the source of music and participants dance and pass the ball around in the circle. Whenever the music stops, whoever has the ball in his6her hand must step into the circle and sing the first verse of his6her national anthem. #f he6she cannot remember the national anthem (which happens sometimes) he6she must sing a love song to pass. )fter this has been done satisfactorily, the trainer turns on the music again and participants again pass the ball in the circle. The game continues until many participants have had the opportunity to sing or the trainer feels that everyone has been energized. Tell ( Stor& " The participants should stand in a circle. The purpose of this activity is to build a story with each participant contributing one sentence that must+

7ake sense and at the same time add some fun to the activity, 2uild on to the last sentence, and 2e grammatically correct.

8or e!ample+ 9'+ 9*+ 9<+ 9=+ :# was walking to breakfast this morning.; :) dog came up to me.; :# said good morning to the dog.; :The dog asked me what # was going to have for breakfast.;

The activity continues until all of the participants have contributed or until the facilitator feels that the group has been energized. T e *ast +ord " The participants should stand in a circle. >ne participant moves and stands randomly in front of another. He6she makes a statement (e.g., :#t is such a lovely day;). The person spoken to will move to another person and make a statement starting with the last word in the statement he6she received (e.g., :?ay one of the course was very tiring;). 0ach participant takes turns to ensure that everybody gets a chance to participate.

T e Telep one " ,articipants should sit or stand in a circle. The facilitator @uickly whispers a message to one participant. This participant passes the message in a whisper to the ne!t person and so on. The last person shouts out the message. 1hances are the final message will be different from the original. Here is an e!ample of an initial message (note how two different activities are blended into the initial statement, a sure cause for confusion when whispered @uickly)+ :# had rice for dinner and then dressed in blue to go dancing.; + at $o ,ou Have- " ?ivide the participants into teams of ="A people. 0ach team should make a list of A"B items that they would probably have with them. 7ake one or two items less common things. The team gets points for eac person who has these items. >nly one of each item per person can be counted and the team with the most points wins. The list could include+ a photograph, a calculator, a pencil, a photograph of a family member, an unusual key chain, something red, etc. #rainstorming " ?ivide the participants into teams of five people. )sk the teams to list+ things that are s@uare, things associated with a holiday, things that are red, things they

can make out a coat hanger, etc. The teams are not allowed to discuss, /ust list itemsC The team with the most items on their list wins. #all Toss #rainstorming " )nnounce a topic (things associated with a topic, a holiday, the course content, etc.). Then, toss around a ball. When someone catches the ball, they shout out something related to the topic and then toss the ball to someone else. 1ontinue the e!ercise until everyone has had a chance to speak. .ariations+ When they catch the ball, each person tells what they thought was the most important learning concept was. 1ontinue the e!ercise until everyone has caught the ball at least once and e!plained an important concept of the material /ust covered. 0ach person tells one step of a process or concept when the ball is tossed to them. The instructor or learner, in turn, writes it on a chalkboard or flipchart. 8or e!ample, after covering .client assessment,. the trainer would start the ball toss by having everyone give one step in the client assessment process. /alm $own0 %ometimes the participants need to calm down or .come down. to reality after some intensive material is presented. )lso, to get the full benefit of new material, some .introspective time. is needed. Have the participants lay their heads on the table, lay on the floor, or get in a comfortable position. Then, have them reflect on what they have /ust learned. )fter about & minutes, say a key word or short phase and have them reflect on it for a couple of minutes. Depeat one or two more times then gather the group into a circle and have them share what they believe are the most important points of the concept and how they can best use it at their place of work. 'ote+ This may seem like a waste of time to many, but reflection is one of the most powerful learning techni@ues availableC 5se itC #oom0 " )ll participants should sit in a circle. They are instructed to count out loud around the circle. 0ach person whose number is a multiple of < (<"A"E"'*, etc.) or a number that ends with < ('<"*<"<<, etc.) must say 2>>7C instead of the number. The ne!t person continues the normal se@uence of numbers. Example+ The first person starts with 1, the ne!t one says 2, and the person who should say 3 says #OOM0 instead, and the ne!t person says 4. )nyone who fails to say #OOM0 or who makes a mistake with the number that follows #OOM0 is dis@ualified.

The numbers must be said rapidly (& seconds ma!imum)F if a participant takes too long to say her6his number, s6he is dis@ualified. The last two participants left are the winners. 'ote+ Gou can have the participants :clap; once instead of saying 2oom. 'ote+ To make this energizer more interesting, when a specific number is reached (e.g., <() have the participants count backwards towards zero. The game can be made more comple! by using multiples of bigger numbers, or by combining multiples of three with multiples of five. 5nique Sa&ings " )t the beginning of the week, form groups of three or four participants. )sk each group to record some of the sayings fre@uently used in their countries or in their region of the country. )fter & to H minutes, ask the groups to report their list of sayings. )s each group reports their list, the trainer should check that the entire group understands each saying. Ieep this list of sayings for another warmup later in the week. Write each saying on a piece of paper and place each in an envelope. >n the third or fourth day of the course or workshop, divide the participants into two groups, one group at each end of the room. >ne representative from each group comes to the center of the room to receive an envelope containing a saying. The representatives read the saying silently and return to their groups. Without speaking to her6his group, the representatives draw a picture on the flipchart to represent the saying s6he has received. The drawings cannot contain any words or parts of words. The members of each group guess the saying that their representative has drawn. The first team to guess the correct saying receives one point. )fter one group has guessed the saying, each group sends a new representative to the center to receive another envelope with a saying and the activity proceeds as described above. The activity continues for '( minutes or until all the sayings have been drawn and identified. The group with the higher number of points wins. Hot 6epper " ,articipants sit in a circle away from the tables and close their eyes. The trainer gives a small ball to one participant who is instructed to pass the ball @uickly to the ne!t person saying :Hot0; ,articipants continue to pass the ball around the group. )s the ball is passed from participant to participant, the trainer turns her6his back, closes eyes and calls out :6epper0; The person who is holding the ball when :6epper0; is called is removed from the circle. The ball continues to be passed until only one person is left.

+ords " ?ivide the participants into three or four small groups. Write the word 7'TE8(/T7.E on the flipchart. The groups have & minutes to create as many three" letter words as possible from the word 7'TE8(/T7.E. 8or e!ample, some of the words could be+

#t Dat Detain

)fter the their time is gone, the group with the most words wins. Jote+ ?epending on the topic, other words can be used in this way, such as :demonstration,; :counseling,; etc. Spider +eb " The participants should stand in a circle. ) ball of yarn is given to one participant who tells the group something about her6himself, such as name, where s6he is from, her6his type of work, why s6he is attending the course, etc. (The information to include will depend on the size of the group and the time allotted for the activity.) The participant with the ball of yarn holds onto the end of the yarn and throws the ball to another participant in the circle, who in turn must introduce her6himself in the same way. ,articipants continue introducing themselves by tossing the ball around the circle until all participants form part of this spider web. )s soon as everyone has introduced her6himself, the person holding the ball returns it to the person who threw it to her6him, as s6he repeats the information about that person. That person then returns the ball to the person who threw it to her6him, repeating her6his information. This continues around the circle, with the ball following its previous path in reverse order until it reaches the participant who first introduced her6himself. 'ote+ Warn the participants beforehand of the importance of paying attention to each introduction, since they will not know who will be throwing the ball at them. T e 6ost O99ice " The participants should sit in a circle, each having her6his own chair. The facilitator takes one chair away and the participant who is left standing stands in the center of the circle and begins the activity. The participant in the center of the circle says something like+ :# bring a letter for all of my colleagues who have brown hair.; )ll of the participants who have the characteristic stated (e.g., brown hair) and the person in the center of the circle change places. Whoever ends up without a chair to sit on,

stands in the center of the circle and again states that s6he is bringing a letter, but for people with a different characteristic, such as+ :# bring a letter for all of my colleagues who are wearing black shoes.; :# bring a letter for all of my colleagues who have never inserted a 1opper T <B() #5?.; The activity can continue as long as the group is interested and enthusiastic, but no longer than '( minutes.
