Summary: Ask fun and general questions. Then have players sort into groups based upon their answers. This game can be used to learn something new about people in the group.
- Make sure there is enough room to move around freely. Explain that the facilitator will ask a series of questions. Players should find other people who share the same answer to the question and separate into groups as quickly as possible.
- Keep the questions moving (i.e. give just enough time for people to introduce themselves before asking the next question). Try to alternate between 50/50 questions and multiple-choice questions.
- Which leg do you put in your pants first when getting dressed?
- When you clap, is your left hand or right hand on top?
- Using your index finger, draw an imaginary circle in the air. Does your finger travel clockwise or counterclockwise?
- Which eye do you use to wink?
- Can you roll your tongue?
- When eating ice cream cones, which way do you rotate the cone?
- What month were you born in?
- Fold your arms; is your right or left arm on top?
- How many siblings are in your family, including you?
- Did you learn something new about someone that you didn’t know before?
- Was it easy to find something in common with other people?
