This book has a collection of icebreakers, energizers, get-acquainted games, opening and closing activities, team challenges and games to build unity, community, and connection within any group.
One thing we really like in this book is that the beginning of each chapter contains a grid highlighting the “Ideal Group Size” and “Teachable Moment” – that is, the reason for conducting the exercise – making it easy to navigate and find an experience that will suit your group's needs.
From the classroom to the boardroom, from summer camp to boot camp, from student leadership programs to corporate leadership programs, and from families to communities, this book will acquaint you with dozens of powerful (and painless) activities that help the members of your group connect in positive ways. Not only are they great activities to start a program, they create wonderful teachable moments with your participants.
In this book, you will find one hundred ways to build unity, community, and connection, including activities that require no props, simple props, and even a few modern props.
