Instructions

Before

Setting: Space enough to have the group stand in a circle.

During

To get to know one another, have the group stand in a circle. Each person will give their name, something they like to do and a gesture that demonstrates what they like. For example, someone who likes to play football may kick an invisible ball, someone who likes to read may demonstrate holding a book with their hands, a TV watcher may make the square screen with their hands.


The facilitator can begin with their name, one thing they like to do and the related gesture. The next person introduces the facilitator, what they like to do and their gesture, and then adds his or her own name, favorite thing and gesture. The next person in the circle introduces both people who have gone before and adds his or her own. This proceeds all the way around the circle. The group can help out those folks who, at the end of the circle, need to remember a great number of names, activities and gestures.
