Classroom Ideas – Photos #58On August 19, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
A few days before the exercise you tell all the participants they have to take a photo to the training on which they are a kid and a photo of a nice memory or one which makes them think of a nice memory. During the exercise everyone lays the picture of himself being a kid in the centre of the circle with the backside faced up so no one knows who placed which picture. The trainer mixes the pictures and chooses someone from the circle who will grab a picture. This person looks at the picture and guesses who is the one on the picture. He thinks it’s Marlon. It isn’t correct and the one who is on the picture speaks up and receives back the picture. Now this person grabs a picture and she now says she thinks it’s Peter. In this case she is right and gives Peter his photo back. Go on like this until each person has gotten his picture back. Now you point to someone who will show the picture about his positive memory while he tells about this memory. He shares his memory while the picture goes around in the circle. In this case he shows the other participants a picture of Scottish mountains. He tells it reminds him of a holiday with his parents when he was five years old. We hiked on the most beautiful Scottish mountains while we were enjoying the view. When I visit my parents we often talk about this holiday and we get the same feeling as we had in Schotland. When everyone has seen the picture and it has returned to the original owner he now points to someone that can show his photo. Repeat this until everyone has had a turn to share his memory. This way all the participants get to know each other better. The trainer guides the team and brings variations to the exercise. What kind of variations you can read below this video on YouTube.
