Participants convey words to their partner without using their voice
Participants will work in pairs or trios.
Each pair or trio has a stack of index cards with simple words written on them. These could be words directly related to the topic of the meeting, or random words. Participants have 3 minutes to convey as many words as possible to their partner; the only rule is that participants cannot use their voice.
This can be a simple and fast energizer!
Without using their voices, most people will begin acting out the words (as in Charades). However, note that the rule is simply to convey the words without using your voice. The words could be drawn, written, or you could simply show the card to your partner! This is a quick lesson in being aware of the habits that we tend to fall into.
