Group Size: Any
Group Ability: All abilities
Icebreaker purpose: Getting to know you
Time: 15 minutes
You have been hired by the Creative Classroom Company to illustrate a poster for helping children learn their ABCs. By happy coincidence, you and your first name are the subjects of the poster!
1. Write your name vertically down the left side of a large piece of paper.
2. Choose words that start with each letter of your name and describe something about you. Write those words horizontally across the paper, using the letters of your name as the first letter of each descriptive word.
For example, Tom might write:
3. Draw an accompanying picture to illustrate each descriptive word.
4. When you are finished, tape your poster to the wall.
Allow 5-10 minutes for set-up and drawing. When all posters are complete, have each person introduce themselves using their poster. Depending on the size of the group, you may want to debrief in smaller groups. If possible, leave the drawings posted throughout your training session.
VARIATION: Narrow the focus of the words. For instance, all words must be adjectives, nouns, verbs, related to work, related to foods you like, and so on.
