Facilitated by the teacher
The aim is to strengthen mutual knowledge and group cohesion.
Whiteboard & box with different things
- Each student selects a personal object that represents them and deposits this, anonymously, in a box.
- Each student takes out an object from the box and says whom it may belong to and why. They should not choose their own object.
- The owners of the object identify themselves and explain why they selected the object.
- The other students can ask questions of the owner of the object. .
An alternative is to replace the object with a photograph of childhood. The activity could be done using online tools such as Padlet, Miro, Mural, virtual whiteboard and breakout rooms in Teams/Zoom.
