Purpose

This is a fun icebreaker to use at the beginning of any course with a group of people who are not familiar with each other. The trainer as well as the participants can use this exercise to introduce themselves to the group.

Objective

  • A fun way for a group of strangers to get to know more about each other.

What You Need

  • A sheet of A3 or flipchart paper for each participant.
  • A number of coloured marker pens for each participant.
  • Blue tack or pins for attaching the sheets to a wall or a flipchart.

Setup

  • Hand out a sheet of paper and a number of coloured pens to each delegate.
  • Explain that delegates have 7 minutes to prepare a presentation. In the presentation they should use a drawing to introduce themselves to the group.
  • Delegate should write their name (or what they like to be called) on top of the sheet.
  • What they draw on the sheet should answer the following questions:
    1. What is your job?
    2. What is your main hobby?
    3. Are you married, living with a partner or single?
    4. How many siblings do you have?
  • After 10 minutes, ask the delegates to stop and collect all the sheets.
  • Ask a volunteer to come up, find their sheet, which is out of view of everyone, and stick their sheet on a wall or flipchart for everyone to see.
  • The group has 30 seconds to a minute to look at it (usually with lots of laugh) before the delegate can explain the drawing.
  • Repeat this until all delegates have presented their drawings.

Timing

Explaining the Test: 5 minutes.

Activity: 7 minutes drawing + 10 minutes presentations = 17 minutes

Group Feedback: 10 minutes.
