3. Ice Breaker
Objective: Meet and get to know everyone. See if you can identify everyone from one thing they share about themselves.
Process: 10 minutes to talk amongst yourselves and mingle. After mingling, write one thing about yourself on a notecard that the group doesn’t know about you. The Facilitator will collect the cards and read them aloud. Write down who you think it is. The answers will be revealed and the person with the most names correct wins a prize.
