Name Recognition

Type of Activity:  Frontloading and Processing

Props Needed:  None

Set Up:  No special space requirements. Works well with up to 15 in a group for 20 to 25 minutes.  Create multiple groups if needed.

Process:  Participants are asked to use the letters in their name to answer a question or give feedback to a situation. You can limit them to just their first, middle or last names or let them use any letters from their full name. For example, I might ask, “How was the energy in that last activity?” Sue might answer, “Surprisingly upbeat.”

Variations:  You could limit communication during an activity by allowing the participants to only use words that start with letters from their name.
