Icebreaker: The observation game

To prepare for the “evaluating community needs” exercise, your club could practice making observations with this icebreaker: 

  1. Club members get into two lines facing each other. If there is an odd number of members, the advisor can play the game too. 
  2. Give everyone 30 seconds to look at the person they are facing, paying attention to all the details about their partner. 
  3. The members in one line now turn facing the other way while the other line of members changes something about themselves. For example, a girl might take off a hair bow, or a boy might untuck his shirt. 
  4. When the members in the first line turn back around, they have to guess what their partner changed. 
  5. Now switch—let the first line make the change and the second line guess the difference.
