Command Performance

Type of Activity:  Get to Know You

Props Needed:  Command Performance Sheet for each Participant (Click Here)

Set Up:  Have the participants number off and tell them to remember their number.  Everyone needs to have a different number starting with number 1 and going up to the number of people in the group.

Process:  Give each participant the Command Performance Sheet.  Tell them to take a pen or   pencil and write their number on the first line of their sheet.  Then, number the rest of the blanks from your number up to the highest number and then start back at 1.  For example, if there were 25  people in the group and I was number 23, I would start with 23 then write 24 and 25, then 1,2,3,4, and so on.

Now that they have the numbers on their page, tell them to find the people with those numbers and follow the instructions on the sheet.  They may start anywhere on the page and try to get through all the items in approximately 5 minutes.

  • Did you interact with people you usually don’t hang out with?
  • What is the value of meeting new people?
