box, cards with words
- to express emotions
- to practice communication and cooperation in the group
The facilitator has placed in a box pairs of cards with words that correspond to positive feelings and conditions (e.g. 2 cards with the word joy, 2 with the word optimism, 2 with the word cooperation, 2 with the word friendship, 2 with the word communication, etc.). Each participant selects a card at random. When every participant has selected a card, the facilitator asks participants to wonder around the classroom and find their “match”, i.e., the person that has selected the same word as them. Each pair comprises of person A and person B. Member A tries to express with his / her body the feeling expressed in the card. Member B tries to follow the movements and expressions of member A pretending to be his / her mirror. The activity is a silent one while it is helpful to have some soft, relaxing music playing in the background.
