OBJECTIVES OF THE ACTIVITY

To warm up mentally through multitasking.

DESCRIPTION

The group stands in a circle. They take turns to say their name going
starting with the facilitator and going clockwise. The participants
should remember whose name was said before theirs. Now the
participants walk, and the facilitator says their name. The rest of the
group say their names in the sequence that they previously created.
The next phase involves the participants forming a new circle. Now
they each pick a large gesture to perform. Again, they should pay
attention to the persons gesture before them. Walking again, the
sequence of gestures is started. Shortly after, the names are
reintroduced. The participants are now multitasking. This continues
to sequence number three. This is when the sense of touch is
incorporated. This can be a high-five, fist bump or any other form of
physical connection. The group walks and slowly the facilitator
reintroduces each sequence.

REFLECTION

There is no need for a reflection after this activity as it is just a simple
warm up.
