Materials

    Instructions

    Directions

    Instruct Group members to line up in order of their birthdays, without talking.

    • Note: Use birthday month and day, but not year, if the participants may feel sensitive about age.
    • You may split participants into team if you have more than 15-25 participants

    Debrief

    What was the experience like? How did you try to communicate? What made it work/not work? What could have been done differently? What did you learn about different people's styles?

    Variations

    • Blindfold some or all participants
    • Use alternative criteria such as middle name (line up alphabetically), age . . . Or have each person choose an animal and all line up by the animals' sizes, smallest to largest.
    • Line up in order of length of time with the company.
