Circle Scramble Focus Learning about others; Name game Materials None Directions The group stands in a circle. Each person says his/her first name so that everyone can hear it. Then, without any type of communication (verbal or nonverbal), they must attempt to get in alphabetical order. Once they think they have it, each person says his/her name to see how close they came. Then go to round two, attempting to fix the mistakes. Go to further rounds, if necessary. Try this with last names, birthdays, address numbers, etc. Anything that is sequential can work. The more people the better! Sample processing questions Facilitation notes How well did we do in this activity? How many rounds did it take? What strategies did you use to figure out where you fit in the circle? What was our common goal (vision) for this activity? Did we all know what it was? Did it help to know what the goal was, even though we were not allowed to communicate? This is another activity that usually need not be processed. It gives people a chance to work together and learn some things about each other in a non-threatening manner.
