NAMES AND QUALITIES (VARIATION ON “NAMES”)
As in the previous exercise - this is a variation - this exercise can be used to get to know the names of the members of the group and can be redone in many other ways.
Key words - Opening up and warm up exercise.
Purpose - Getting to know the group, learning names. Prerequisites - Knowing the names of the participants.
Description - Participants are in a circle. The trainer starts tossing a ball (or another object that can be thrown) to a participant. This time the person who tosses the ball must say the name of the person who will receive it, adding a positive quality that has struck her/him. The receiver, once catching the ball, does the same thing to another participant. This continues until everyone has had their turn.
Duration - A minimum of 5 minutes to a maximum of 10.
